I am currently listening to Andy Summers' solo albums and was curious as to which member of the Police's solo output you enjoy the most.

Three very talented blokes for a bunch of long haired hippie rock musicians.
Copeland is my favorite musician of the bunch, his drumming is excellent, but I probably have listened more to Summers two albums with Fripp, so I gave him the vote.

I listened to those two albums for the first time today.  The first was better than the second but both were pretty good.  I'd say that Copeland is probably my favorite musician out of them as well.  I probably enjoy Sting's solo albums the most though his last couple have not been that good in my opinion.  May have something to do with me not having much interest in Celtic music in more than small doses.

I prefer all of them in one place - The Police, from solo albums I would stay with early Sting solo works

All 3 as The Police is the real correct answer to the poll.

Sting for me too
I think the problem with a lot of the fusion music is that it's extremely predictable, it's a rock rhythm and the solos all play the same stuff and they play it over and over again ...

Have you heard the album that he did with John Etheridge "Invisible Threads"?

Not a fan of Sting

Copeland is probably the one I appreciate most

I almost voted 'none of the above', but then I remembered that Sting did have a pretty decent solo album, 'Nothing Like the Sun' (one of the better symph-pop albums out there). After which the things went progressively downhill. I tried to befriend the after-Police Summers and Copeland as well, but to me it looks like they had'd reached their prime in the Police configuration, so no point in chasing after the wind.

I don't have any solo Copeland albums but I do have several of Sting's and Summer's, all of which I like and most of which I have gotten used a year or more after they were released.  On the whole I have to go with Summers.

Definitely Andy for me... Saw him twice in the 90's...
 
Sting never gave me the will to see him live.  (outside seeing The Police for the Regatta tour)

my music collection increased tenfolds when I switched from drug-addicted musicians to crazy ones....
