Police DVDs Could Be In The Offing

"We certainly have a lot of visual footage," says Copeland, brother of drummer Stewart Copeland. "We want to do a lot of DVD product, where we pull a lot of the visual stuff together."
And indeed, Copeland notes there is much available, from the group's many music videos to the previously released "Around the World" film, to well-known footage of the band performing on the Synchronicity tour, plus a lot of early footage shot by Stewart.
He adds, "I've already been talking to the catalog division at Universal to say, 'We should start thinking about DVD releases from one year from now. We have all this kind of footage, so why don't we put together a series of stuff?'"
The Police have not been on stage together since Sting's 1992 wedding, and have not recorded as a group since 1986. Stewart Copeland told Billboard.com in September 2001 that the trio was planning to jam for fun at Sting's 50th birthday party in Marrakesh, Morocco, but the bash was canceled in the wake of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks on New York and Washington, D.C.
