After that the tow or salvage yard that has the vehicle is allowed to sell/scrap it. At which time the officer can technically purchase it legally. But is highly unlikely to happen - let me know what happens

They will probably run a "carfax" or similar title search on the vehicle prior to insuring it. If they don't ask you the question, "Is this a salvage vehicle?" you don't have to volunteer the information. If something were to happen to the vehicle and it became a total loss you could face fraud charges if you claimed more than you paid for the vehicle in an insurance claim.
