There is no need to become root in order to use `service`:

$ /usr/sbin/service nginx status
[ ok ] nginx is running.
$

Even with a user with id larger than 4000000000:

$ sudo -u testpolkit /usr/sbin/service nginx stop
[....] Stopping nginx: nginxstart-stop-daemon: warning: failed to kill 2509: Operation not permitted
. ok
$

That's because sudo does *not* use policykit to test user privileges
(rather, it uses its own config files). So maybe this is not
applicable in this case?
