The purpose of the assessment was to perform a physical security plan survey, evaluate the security threats at each of the campuses, identify gaps in the current security program, and recommend measures that CFCC should consider going forward to mitigate the probability and criticality of a future security event. Included in this assessment were surveys that were done at each of the three Cape Fear Community College sites located in Wilmington, Castle Hayne, and Burgaw. During these surveys, consultants focused on the security elements of the culture and operation at each of the sites and specifically the elements of physical security, security systems, security operations and the overall security program. In assessing risk at each campus site, RMA evaluated the physical risk to employees, students, and guests, evaluated risks to property, and determined the potential threats to employees and/or property. RMA created a Student and Employee Security Survey to provide valuable intelligence about the culture at the college, gaps in the security program, and gaps in the stakeholders’ understanding of the security program at CFCC.
