    is helping the police with their inquiries

    Hello, there:
    I am learning the term " inquire" and
    I saw a sentence
    " Two men were helping police with their inquiries at salisbury last night."
    I can't quite grasp its meaning.
    Does it mean police inquire two men or other meaning?
    May I have your explanation for me?

    Thanks a lot!

    Re: is helping the police with their inquiries

    It means that the police are investigating some event, and these two men are being interviewed as part of the investigation/inquiry process.
