It would technically be Police Quest 7, btw! SWAT 1 and SWAT 2 had the PQ5 (Police Quest 5) and PQ6 (Police Quet 6) names in the files and when you quite the game, and on some of the 'about screens'. PQ4 was also treated the same way, with abreviations in the files, as you quite the game, not the title screen.
But anyways, I would think going back to the basics for the next Police Quest, would work, since as a "quest" game they can advertise it off the succes of the KQ series. Much as the series originally was done back in the day.
PQ still has a following. That's why its seen releases several times over the years.
Speaking of PQ I've been playing L.A. Noire and it kinda reminds me of PQ in some ways. But its more of an open world sandbox style game with cases in between. It's set in the 40-50's. It might be viable to make PQ in a similar format.
KQ8 Law: As an online discussion references or discussing KQ8 grows longer, the probability of a comparison involving it not being a KQ game or not part of the KQ series approaches 1.
