Why aren't you using the one from polkit itself? There is one in
data/polkit.service.in, which gets compiled to polkit.service, and
apparently installed if HAVE_SYSTEMD is enabled. There also a D-Bus
service file at data/org.freedesktop.PolicyKit1.service.in.

These could be done separately from the systemd service file addition.
