David Fearon and Jake McNeill scored two apiece as Knockbreda and PSNI shared the points at Breda Park.
Knockbreda shaded the opening exchanges but it was the visitors who took the lead on 23 minutes through former 'Breda player McNeill.
The home defence failed to clear a ball from their box and McNeill controlled the ball and from 20 yards fired a great left footed shot past Lee Windrum.
PSNI keeper Jordan Williamson made good saves on 30 and 42 minutes to keep his side ahead at half-time.
'Breda deservedly equalised on 53 minutes through Fearon who held off a defender and from the edge of the box hit a left footed effort high into the net.
Fearon edged Knockbreda in front on 78 minutes with a 20-yard free-kick whuch he curled around the wall and into the net.
However, right at the end, McNeill levelled for the PSNI when, following a scramble in the box, he touched the ball home from close range.
