The New South Wales Police Service has the Police Service badge (as seen at the Police Service website) on a light blue over white bicolour. It is used swallowtailed on bikes.
Jonathan Dixon, 4 January 2001
A detailed description can be found at http://www.policensw.com/info/history/h8.html.
Note that the badge originally read 'New South Wales Police Force', later changed to 'New South Wales Police Service', and now simply 'New South Wales Police'. Note also that the eagle clutches a red ribbon with the word 'Nemesis' written on it.
Most Police Stations in NSW fly only the State Flag; when there are two
or more flagpoles available, the National Flag and/or Police Flag might
also be flown. It is not customary to fly the Police Flag on police
boats. When on ceremonial duty, police motorcycles fly a swallow-tailed
version of the Police Flag, and horse-mounted police fly plain dark
blue-above-white swallow-tailed lance pennons.

The Nemesis Pennant of the NSW Water Police is the police pennant flown by NSW water police vessels.
The Royal Volunteer Coastal Patrol is also entitled to fly it due to the fact that, during the early days of the RVCP, its members were 'Special Police Constables' of the 'Water Police Reserve'.
In this case, it is a trapezoidal flag, 1:2, quarterly white and navy blue; in the canton is the word NEMESIS sans-serif in red; in the lower fly is the initial RVCP sans-serif in red.
