People 'Persons' is a word, but it's only used in legal contexts. It's so uncommon that a lot of native speakers think it's a typo when they see it.

Persons or people.

Use "people". "Persons" only works when you mean "individuals". Most of the time you need "people", otherwise your writing just looks wrong.
