"The Police" is a self-titled greatest hits compilation released by The Police on June 5, 2007 to accompany their reunion tour. It contains 28 tracks over two discs, a mixture of hits and fan favorites. International editions contain two bonus tracks, "The Bed's Too Big Without You" from Reggatta de Blanc, and "Rehumanize Yourself" from Ghost in the Machine.

The album debuted at number 11 on the U.S. Billboard 200, selling about 58,000 copies in its first week. [Katie Hasty, [http://www.billboard.com/bbcom/news/article_display.jsp?vnu_content_id=1003598112 "T-Pain Soars To No. 1 Ahead Of Rihanna, McCartney"] , Billboard.com, June 13, 2007.] As of July 11, 2007, the album has sold 180,558 copies in the US. However, the RIAA says that albums over 100 minutes count as 2 CDs; therefore the US total would double to 361,116. [ [http://www.ukmix.org/forums/viewtopic.php?t=46325 Billboard Top 200] ]
