Schumacher Kuwali, Micium Mhone and Maxwell Salambula netted a goal each to ensure a 3-2 win for Eagles.
The victory takes the police officers to fourth on the standings with 23 points from 12 matches while Mzuni are bottom of the 16 team league with six points making them favourites for relegation.
In Blantyre, Karonga United started their southern region tour with a deserved point as they held Mighty Tigers to a one all draw at Kamuzu Stadium.
Bonda Mpinganjira scored for the hosts while Chrispine Mhango netted for the visitors in an entertaining match which was watched by a sizable crowd as people left their businesses to pokopoko (cheer) at one of the oldest soccer arenas in the city.
