Pittsburgh, PA (PRWEB) June 28, 2013
New Horizon Security Services, Inc., a family-owned and operated professional security services firm, will sponsor Prince William County police officers as they participate in the 2013 Steel City Motor Skills Competition.
The three-day competition is a way for motor officers to “improve their riding skills, exchange new training ideas and improve or create inter-agency relations,” according to the event’s website. While the competition is only open to police officers on police motorcycles, New Horizon Security President John “J.J.” Frazer said sponsoring Prince William County officers was a great way to give back to local officers.
“In the Private Security industry, it is extremely important to maintain an excellent working relationship with local law enforcement,” Frazer said. “And as an agency that has called Prince William County home for 15 years, we are proud to be able to give back to the police officers who have stood side by side with our New Horizon Security officers over the years.”
Similar riding events have included cone courses set up to challenge officers riding abilities by simulation maneuvering through stopped traffic and other real life riding challenges, said New Horizon Security Assistant Project Manager Mike Bennett.
“These events allow officers to compete against other motor officers from around the United States and provide the opportunity to network on department issues, policies and police equipment,” Bennett said.
Bennett, who retired from the Prince William County police department last year after a 26-year career, was part of the company’s reasoning to sponsor the competing officers.
“We are excited to celebrate our connections to the Prince William County department and motor pool through Mike,” New Horizon Security Vice President Christy Frazer said.
The competition will be open and free of charge for the public to view on June 27-29, 2013.
