Indiscipline crept into the match in the latter stages with a player from both teams sent to the sin-bin.
Yamacia led Police by 21-19 until the17th minute when some neat passing resulted in a try in the corner to put the lawmen in the lead for the first time.
Rover Apisalome Waqatabu sealed the win with a sublime sideline conversion for the final score of 26-21 and see Police win the title and collect the $10,000 prize money.
