When I lived in Henderson, I heard things like that a few times myself. What I think MAY be happening is this:

On the siren console in the unit, there is usually a setting that will rebroadcast the radio traffic over the PA system. The officer may have it set to that, being away from his unit and such. If, for whatever reason, he could not leave his position, he may have keyed the mic on his HT, allowing him to use the PA-Radio setting in the car as a PA. I've witnessed several agencies do this over the years.

Just a thought.
