The Royal Malaysian Police College Kuala Lumpur or Maktab Polis Diraja Malaysia Kuala Lumpur is a police educational institution located in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. It is responsible for training senior officers in the Malaysian Police and the Malaysian Armed Forces. The College also trains police officers and soldiers from Indonesia, Singapore, Brunei, Thailand, Russia, the United Kingdom and the United States.


The idea for a Senior Officers College was first proposed by the then Inspector General of Police, the Honorable Tun Mohd Hanif B Omar, after a conducting a study on the need to improve the conditions of training institutions. The College's grounds were broken on 7 January 1994 at the Police Field Force Central Brigade, Cheras, opposite the previous Police College. The physical construction of the college began on January 16, 1996, and the institution began operating in part on January 31, 1999.

The Senior Officers' College executes the function of four previous training institutions namely:

  • Police College, Kuala Kubu Bahru, Selangor
  • Criminal Investigation College, KL
  • Special Branch Training School, KL
  • Traffic Training School, Cheras, KL

The college was officially opened on July 10, 2004 by the former Prime Minister and Internal Security Minister of Malaysia, Tun Abdullah Bin Haji Ahmad Badawi
