Is "police secours" singular or plural?

I'm wondering if one would say "Je l'ai appelé(e?)." or "Je les ai appelé(e?)s." I've seen entries giving it as a feminine singular noun (based on 'la police' perhaps?), masculine singular (based on 'le secours' I'm guessing...), and plural. If it can be either or if it's "none of the above", I would like to know. Merci.

Hi Bonnie, 

Having checked in France, the consensus is -

Je les ai appelés
