Maybe it is just my poor american english grammar, but we usually say "the police have..." in common speach. Whether it is correct or not.

Why not accept "closed off"?

Hmmm... I'd say you "shut" an access control (e.g. door, valve, tap, mouth), "shut off" a flow or a source (e.g. power, water, sound), and "shut down" a process or operation (e.g. computer program, company business line). Not sure if a street qualifies.
