The question is why do police officers either touch or tap the taillight of your car? According to Share they do this for several reasons. One they tap the trunk to see if anyone is in the trunk. For the second reason I asked a police officer friend of mine and this is what he said.: 

"Yup, I also do it to leave my finger prints on the vehicle in the event something happens to me and the vehicle flees. I don't use the tail light though...I use the hatch or trunk lid." 

Police officers do it for their own safty. The more you know!!!
