As a policeman they sometimes have to run to a fire or do many time needed things. Through some times certain policeman have abused this.
Why cops originally sped fast actually has to do with racing as the first form of racing was with moonshine (alcohol) during the prohibition and people where racing the moonshine away from cops. There for the cops had to break the speed limit just to catch these people which they still just about never did.
In the past, before GPS and more advanced means of communication, I do believe that speeding was a crucial issue for policemen. For the cops themselves, if they were in pursuit of someone, they had to rely more on their own instincts rather than the advice of their coworkers or someone on the radio.
Speeding compared to many other minor and major crimes, seems pretty insignificant, but it can threaten driver and pedestrian safety. That would have been the same "back in the day". Therefore it would have been of concern to police of earlier times. Even when there were few cars on the roads, people still managed to have accidents and to hurt others if they weren't driving carefully, and speeding is a factor.
Police didn't care if you were going 10 over the speed limit back in the day, but they used speeding as an excuse to harass bootleggers + the like and they would also pursue you if you were going well over the speed limit. I've got old family stories of there being issues back in the day, because the cop would see you were speeding in your hopped up racer, you'd see him and provided you had enough gas you could just pin it to the floor until you were out of sight. That kind of speeding was an issue that didn't have a chance of being solved until the muscle car era brought high performance equalizers into the police force in my area with 400+ cubic inch power plants. Even then, its said they had their hands full.
At the same time, I have other stories about police coming out to the local street racing events and making sure all the kids were safe. Didn't arrest anyone or break the races up. Just made sure the roads were clear, and everyone was alright.

Back in the day, police had a lot less to do in daily routines. It's still true today, really. It's a lot of citations for menial tasks and not bank robberies and murders and such. However, back in the day, places were less crowded and cars were slower. Speeding is much more of an issue now.
Many argue that it would make police officers (and suspects) accountable for their actions. Some, however, argue that this would cause privacy issues and would, in a sense, make it appear that the world believes police officers aren't to be trusted.
