If one wanted to say: "Police officers are needed at the bank entrance"

One can say: "Se necesitan policías en la entrada del banco."

In sentences like this can "policías" ever precede the verb?  (ie "Policías se necesitan..."

Hola Andrew

No, in this type of sentence you can't place it in the beginning, it needs to be after the verb.
