▲police的意思是“警察”,指警察这个官方机构。The police are the official organization that is responsible for making sure that people obey the law. 它是单数形式的复数名词,前面一般要用定冠词the,但在英语报道或口语中,有时省略不用,作主语时谓语动词用复数形式。

▲police可以指人(即:警察)。Police are men and women who are members of the official organization that is responsible for making sure that people obey the law.

当police指具体的人时,可用they,their等复数代词指代,可以受these, most, several, many, dozens of等表示不确切的量词修饰,也可以受两个以上的基数词修饰,此时的police相当于复数policemen。但不可用a或one修饰police表示单个警察。例如:
