From the Orange Police Facebook Page:

Some might say, luck has a lot to do with success in police work. Officer James Kline and Officer Amable Colon found themselves at the right place at the right time while on patrol back in June of 2015.

Ofc. Kline had been assigned as Colon’s Field Training Officer and the two were patrolling the commercial corridor in Orange along the Boston Post Road. It was then, that Kline saw the Google Maps car pulling into the main driveway of the plaza they had been patrolling, and he decided to seize the moment.

Kline called it an exercise in “Media Relations” and “Police & the Public.” As the picture reflects as the google vehicle drove by the officers were able to give a friendly wave. Google voluntarily blurred the officers face and the cruiser plate in the photo.

Ofc. Colon would check the Google Maps site on occasion to see if the picture was used and just recently stumbled upon the image. 

Often people will stage scenes for the google photo cars, in this case is was purely being in the right place at the right time.
