Therefore, there is a need to elevate the fields of security and law enforcement at par with global standards.
The college had then taken a bold step in introducing the first Diploma in Security Management programme in Malaysia. The Diploma has been accredited by the Malaysian Qualification Agency (MQA) and is recognised by the Public Service Department(JPA). Royal Malaysia Police(PDRM) had also graciously hosted and officiated the commencement of the first intake for police personnel at the Markas Pasukan Gerakan Am, Cheras, Kuala Lumpur on the 16th of July 2010. Currently there are more than 340 policemen and officers undertaking the diploma programme at Saito.
In line with Royal Malaysia Police's initiative to enhance the expertise and professionalism of police personnel, the Diploma in Security Management programme will provide invaluable knowledge and exposure in the areas of police science and law enforcement. Saito College has pledged full support to work with PDRM to continously enhance the course syllabus to meet the requirements and competencies and also other law enforcement agencies that require similar training.
Since the introduction of the Diploma in Security Management in 2007, Saito College has received overwhelming response from PDRM and other law enforcement agencies in the country as well as SPM holders. Today, the college has over 1,000 students enrolled in the programme.
