A quick question for you. Which of the following is correct? And why?
1. "The police is invastigating this case."
2. "The police are invastigating this case."
The police are investigating this case.
I think 'are' is correct because 'police' means a group of people and its verb should be plural, but I've seen the sentence like 'the police is ___' just once if I remember correctly.
are - police is here a collective nooun and there is no distinct plural for police (singular and plural)
