The Police were an English rock band formed in London in 1977. They disbanded in 1986, but reunited in early 2007 for a hugely successful one-off world tour that ended in August 2008. The Police have sold over 75 million records, making them one of the world’s best-selling artists of all time. The band has won a number of music awards throughout their career, including six Grammy Awards, two Brit Awards—winning Best British Group once, an MTV Video Music Award, and in 2003 were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
