New Horizon Security Services, Inc., a privately-owned security services firm headquartered in Manassas, VA, specializing in armed and unarmed security officers in the Mid-Atlantic region, provided security services to the 2015 Celebrate Fairfax! Festival held June 5-7.
The annual three-day festival draws tens of thousands of visitors and features over 300 vendors, a major firework show on Friday and Saturday nights, and more than 40 carnival rides.
As a Gold Sponsor, New Horizon Security provided a team of nearly 65 security officers who secured access points and performed bag screening to prevent prohibited items from entering. The security team also worked traffic control to ensure fluid entry and exit, executed routine patrols to ensure perimeters were secure, and provided crowd control at the prime concerts.
“This is a major event for Fairfax County and the community,” said John “J.J.” Frazer, President and CEO of New Horizon Security, “I’m honored that my team was trusted again to provide security for this celebrated event.”
New Horizon Security brought together a team of highly-skilled security officers from across the region who typically work at other government, education and commercial locations. New Horizon Security established a command post that featured a full size RV to support operations and provide the security team with a place to cool down throughout the weekend.
New Horizon Security’s training and recruiting staff were on hand all weekend to support and provide meals to the security staff working the festival. “Having the office team come out to support the officers was extremely helpful,” added J.J., “Not only did the officers not have to worry about meals before, during or after shifts, but the comradery was very rewarding.”
