On 3 May 2011, SIM University (UniSIM) renewed its Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the Singapore Police Force (SPF). This MOU is from 2011-2016. The earlier MOU signed on 17 May 2006 was the first MOU that UniSIM had customised for any organisations. The BSc Management and Security Studies programme (BSMSS) remains a first for Singapore as well as the Southeast Asian region. The programme's curriculum will gradually incorporate more knowledge and theories on contemporary security issues and measures. There will also be a strengthening of ties between UniSIM and the Singapore Police Force. Under the new MOU, site visits will be conducted to various Home Team departments, agencies, and units to give BSMSS students a better insight of the working environment in these entities. * On 17 March 2017, SIM University (UniSIM) was renamed Singapore University of Social Sciences (SUSS) as part of its re-structuring to become a Singapore autonomous university.
