This study aimed to assess the current state of campus security in selected HEIs in Nueva Ecija. It utilizes the descriptive-quantitative method of research. This study was conducted at the selected HEIs in Nueva Ecija. The administrators, faculty and students, and security personnel are the respondents of the study, and a questionnaire was used to gather pertinent data. Weighted mean was used to determine the current state of campus security, the satisfaction of respondents with the security services and the function of security personnel. Findings revealed that the five selected HEIs adhere to security practices and procedures in terms of physical security, personnel security, and document security as rated by respondents to be very much implemented. Among the fifteen problems encountered, the top three are: “There are limited CCTV cameras installed in strategic locations”. “Sprinkler systems and smoke detectors are not installed in offices and laboratories” and “There are inconsistent in the implementation of the NO-ID NO Entry Policy, Visitor's ID and logbook, and Gate Pass policy”. The findings show that the five selected HEIs have no difference in their current state of campus security. The very much satisfaction rating in the area of the chief security officer and much satisfaction along security guards by the group of respondents signify that they are pleased with the function and services rendered by security personnel. It is recommended that selected HEIs shall continue and maintain the security practices and procedures that were already put into operation. Installation of Security cameras in strategic locations should be considered including sprinkler systems. Security guards should continue and consistently implement the security policies, rules, and regulations of the school. Future studies should be conducted focusing on safety measures against a natural or manmade disaster that would happen inside the campus and creating a Safety manual for the college and Adoption of the proposed security manual for the improvement of the implementation of campus security.
