does this sound natural?
A: the first sentence: the only thing I’d change is say “gone” instead of “finished” - that may also be a dialect difference so it isn’t necessarily incorrect.

*the police is behind us so drive carefully.

as for the second sentence, “is” needs to be “are” because “the police” is a plural noun, so it has to take the plural form - “are”

I hope this helped!
