A Conversation for Declining English

the princes' police

Sea Change

I live in America and I have never seen either prince' or police' written as a plural possessive. If each prince had his own secret police (say, in David Eddings' long fantasy epics) I'd expect to see what I titled this conversation.

If it's what's actually considered grammatically correct here, then nobody follows this rule.
