Richmond, VA (PRWEB) October 02, 2012
New Horizon Security Services, Inc., a family-owned and operated professional security services firm, has been contracted to provide armed and unarmed security services for the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) throughout the Commonwealth of Virginia.
VDOT is responsible for building, maintaining and operating the state’s roads, bridges and tunnels across Virginia’s nine districts, according to its website.
It is a ground breaking win for a single security company to be chosen as the primary provider in each district, New Horizon Security President John “J.J.” Frazer said. Yesterday, the company began services in VDOT locations throughout Bristol, Suffolk, Richmond, Staunton, Fredericksburg, the Jamestown-Scotland Ferry, and the Central Office in Richmond, Va., as well as the Department of Forensic Science and the State Corporation Commission.
“We are very proud to be the primary security services provider for the Virginia Department of Transportation,” Frazer said. “VDOT accepted our approach to standardize quality and customer service at all VDOT sites while maintaining the flexibility needed to tailor site-specific security procedures. This is a testament to our reputation as Virginia’s choice for private security.”
Virginia State Government Agencies may now also choose to avoid the lengthy procurement process by directly contracting New Horizon Security as a VDOT Contract rider. The VDOT contract provides an established billing rate in every county in the Commonwealth.
“We are extremely excited at the number of agencies who have already contacted VDOT to ride the contract,” Frazer said.
