  We always use a plural verb with the police :    
                         
    The police have arrested Tom.        
    Are the police paid well?          
                         
  Sometimes we use a plural noun with  a singular verb.

  Three years  { it } is a long time to be without a job.  
                         
  We say " a vacation of three weeks"  =  "a three - week   
  vacation":
