does any one know why there are so many empty police cars setting at the police station in Christainsted ?

Wondering the same myself! Every time I go to town, no matter what the time, there are at least that many! Didn't see one cop at Jump Up recently. They may have been there, I'm not saying that before some jumps on me, but, I didn't see any. Was there for over 3 hours!

Friends and I were at Jump Up, and cops were seen in spots to show visibility, in fact, we spoke briefly to a few,

Don't find it unusually police cars "parked in front of the station".

A lot of factors, ie assignments, etc....Im sure the station has allocated cars based on size and potential MAXIMUM use. Working for a government department with assigned vehicles, some days all our cars in use. Other days, all parked because assignments did not require usage of a vehicle.

Simply put, don't see "quantity" of police cars parked in front of the station abnormal or a gauge to judge performance of a police department.
