Singapore Police Force

The mission of the Singapore Police Force (SPF) is to uphold the law, maintain order and keep the peace in Singapore.

SUSS and SPF jointly launched the Bachelor of Science in Management and Security Studies (BSMSS) programme on 17 May 2006. The first of its kind in Singapore, the BSMSS programme serves as an upgrading pathway for non-graduate police officers. The programme, offered through SUSS ’s modular and flexible learning pedagogy, makes it easier for in-service police officers to upgrade their qualifications, given the unpredictable nature of their duties.

On 3 May 2011, the parties renewed the MOU and included several new features, such as the use of different e-learning strategies and the opening up of the Security Studies component, previously only available to the Home Team, to all SUSS students as a minor. SUSS’s School of Humanities and Behavioural Sciences (SHBS) entered a Master Collaboration Agreement with SPF on 5 October 2017, to undertake the development and administration of certification examinations for professional translators and interpreters (CEPI) and third language proficiency tests for the Civil Service.
