My security officers are tasked to protect the most important people in our lives: our children.
Manassas, Va. (PRWEB) February 26, 2013
New Horizon Security Services, Inc., a family-owned and operated professional security services firm, was awarded a multi-year contract with Northern Virginia Community College to provide fully qualified, professionally trained unarmed security officers for six campuses and four off-site centers. The award is for a two year period beginning on April 1, 2013 with three additional renewal options.
Northern Virginia Community College enrolls more than 78,000 credit students annually, and over 300,000 individuals participate in non-credit, continuing education, and workforce development programs and activities on the College’s campuses. It is also the second largest multi-campus community college in the United States.
“This is an exciting contract for New Horizon Security because it continues to grow our Education Security division,” New Horizon Security President John “J.J.” Frazer said. “Providing security services for the largest institution of higher education in the Commonwealth of Virginia is an impressive responsibility and we are looking forward to improving their current security program.”
New Horizon Security’s unarmed security officers will supplement and assist campus police by providing facility access control and protection of the occupants and property located on College grounds.
“The officers will use creative patrolling and reporting techniques tracked by technology to ensure they provide efficient and verifiable patrols,” Frazer said.
The Education Security Division’s considerable growth in 2012 sparked the need for in-house instructors who specialize in campus and school security.
“We have certified Campus Security Officer (CSO) Instructors positioned throughout the Commonwealth of Virginia,” Frazer said. “Our CSO Instructors provide high quality school safety and campus safety training programs for our security officers serving a wide-range of institutions with students from elementary-age to adults.”
As a result of its specialized training capability and positive past performance, New Horizon Security was also recently awarded a contract to provide unarmed officers to monitor hallways of high schools in Alexandria, Va. supplementing school resource officers.
Frazer said he believed creating security in public schools and on college campuses was one of the most rewarding security functions his company provides.
“As the father of two children, I appreciate the vulnerability that parents feel when their children leave the house,” he said. “I created the Education Security Division with that feeling in mind. My security officers are tasked to protect the most important people in our lives: our children. I ask my staff to bring great passion for safety to every shift by focusing on customer service and professionalism so students of all ages feel protected when New Horizon Security officers are near.”
New Horizon Security is also the exclusive security provider in the Washington D.C. metropolitan area for one of the nation’s largest student tour providers. The company provides unarmed floor monitors to safeguard student hotel rooms during overnight trips to the nation’s capital.
“We’ve provided security for thousands of middle- and high school groups over the past 15 years,” Frazer said. “The years of experience in direct management and operational oversight of student security using a tailored approach to training, technology, and customer service makes New Horizon Security uniquely qualified to lead the way to the future of education security.”
