How do jammers interrupt a police officer's radar signal? Also, couldn't you just use Radar Detector Detectors (RDDs) to determine when a patrol car is in range?

From your question, it seems there is a bit of confusion. Radar detectors are what people put in their cars to detect police radars. A radar detector is a device installed by the police or police in areas where radar detectors are declared illegal, check your local laws.
signal jammer is not the same as radar detectors. While detectors are basically just receivers, jammers are radiofrequency transmitters. Jammers are a type of active countermeasures used by the military and they transmit a strong RF signal in the radar bands to mask the radar signature of the police radar. Radar jammers are illegal in all parts of the country, not only by local authorities but also by the FCC. You must be authorized to use this type of equipment.
