Мой комментарий к «Самое коварное слово в английском» от artyom_ferrier

Not always.


This is true for standard English, but there are non-standard usages of police as a singular noun. For instance, on the TV show The Wire, set in Baltimore, characters say things like "I'm a murder police" (meaning "I'm a homicide detective"). It's hard to tell if this is dialect, slang or jargon, but I believe the show is generally considered to be realistic in its use of language. – Nate Eldredge Jul 13 '13 at 16:48
