NYC Police Parade?

In the last half-hour, two "police parades" (my term) have passed by my office window on 6th Avenue. In these events, anywhere from 15 to 40 closely-spaced police cars drive up the avenue with lights flashing. They're *not* accompanying a black SUV containing some VIP. VIP convoys usually consist of just a few black cars, not a flashy parade. They're not in a hurry and there are no sirens, so it doesn't seem there's any emergency happening. I see these "parades" at least a couple of times a week, and since I'm not always by my window, it seems likely there are many more of them happening on Sixth Avenue and elsewhere in the city when I'm not looking. It all seems pointless. Any idea what's going on?
