Physical security, parameter protection and access control in government agencies especially in State Government localities have suffered severe negligence and disrepair. Local state governments, many established over four decades ago, applied obsolete security and safety measures within its compound. The main problems faced such as building maintenance scheme, lack of security measures and implementation and poorly documented security references are further described in this paper. The foundation of physical security protection design lay the groundwork as a basis of research. Then, mechanical physical protection schemes are investigated to mitigate the lack of safety and security mentioned. To complement these measures, Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design (CPTED) Principles and Security Education, Training and Awareness (SETA) techniques are further explored in hopes to establish an all-encompassing security model. This study will use a mix method design by incorporating qualitative and quantitative analysis. Main data collection came from sets of questionnaires and observation checklists by using CPTED, Physical Security Plan and SETA principles. The finding of this study is to prove whether this model can increase overall security in the State Government localities. This study hopes to propose a complete physical security model that can be reproduced and most importantly, increases overall security in State Government and the Federal Institution compound in general.
