he primary goal of any physical security master plan is to validate the operation and consistency of the security systems, security processes and protection of assets. The final plan that is put in place will be subject to monthly, quarterly, and/or annual review, and requires continuous improvement. Auditing these processes creates active involvement of the security team and each department throughout the campus.
In order to be effective, valued and result-based, campus security master planning must have a balance of architectural, electronic and operational measures. Passive solutions should be integrated with current technology to derive the most effective security solution, cognizant of cost and operational requirements. It is equally important that the vision of the physical security design coincides with the mission of the campus.
