My primary interest is in specifying the kind of police and facility, a generic amenity=police on top of that does not harm. If the new scheme becomes so widespread that every police station also has a more specific police=* tag, we can still decide to remove the amenity=police tags.

amenity=police + police=* is a established way of refining the tagging.
There is no need to abandon amenity=police for public facing police stations.
