    As the policemen were searching through

    I am wondering if my sentence sounds natural. Would you please correct my mistakes?

    As the policemen were searching through the apartment block, David hid in the loft, listening apprehensively to the sounds under him.

    Re: As the policemen were searching through

    You might want to use "below" instead of "under" there.

    And you might want to change 'policemen' to 'police officers'.
