The creation of the corp in universities also allowed those who had not participated in school to join and get a better understanding of the police and their service to the public. The realisation of the importance of the policemen duties would move graduates to opt for a career in the police. The establishment the Police Undergraduate Voluntary Corp (SUKSIS's Corps) will act as points and ears Royal Malaysian Police (RMP) in channel information about crime scene in local area.
