In number 4, I think you should use the plural verb "give" because "police" is considered a plural noun.

Well, I guess 4 could be considered correct as you first had it -- if you had to say what part of speech the noun clause was serving as, what would you say?

I agree with Ms. Sue. You should either use "policeman" or "give" but the way it's written right now, there's a subj/verb disagreement!

MC -- I'm not offended -- but find it humorous that you should address two retired women teachers as "guys." <g>
