Is law enforcement treated the same way as using police, that is, as a plural noun?

Which sentence is correct:

Law enforcement finds the bodies.


Law enforcement find the bodies.


When you use the phrase "law enforcement" as a collective noun, you treat it as singular. Police is plural, police officer is singular.

As a side note, if you were looking for a plural, you would have to say "law enforcement agencies".
