3. Ashore Installation/Physical Security. Navy wide Physical
Security programs address the protection of personnel and
property (as such it is inseparably intertwined, but not
exclusively limited to, AT/FP). Such protection is accomplished
by identifying the property requiring protection, determining
jurisdiction and boundaries, assessing the threat, and
committing resources. The physical security program is defined
as the part of security concerned with active and passive
security measures designed to prevent unauthorized access to
personnel, equipment, installations, material and documents, and
to safeguard them against espionage, sabotage, damage, and theft.
