You only need to copy suricata.service to /etc if you want to change its
contents. Even then, often drop-in snippets are preferrable, which only
override/extend the parts you need

The suricata package still ships a SysV init script, but if a systemd
service file exists, it takes precedence.

 how can I add this service into systemd, so that it is

systemctl enable suricata.service

will do the trick. That should be done by the package though.
I see you already filed a bug report [1] for that. The package should be
using init-system-helper/dh_systemd to help automate that.
