New Horizon Security Services, a privately-owned security firm headquartered in Manassas, was awarded the contract for the Virginia Department of General Services.

Coupled with pre-existing contracts with many Virginia agencies, the contract win made New Horizon Security the provider of security officers for the commonwealth, according to a news release.

The contract’s main purpose is to provide security in state-run buildings and parking facilities spanning eight city blocks in downtown Richmond surrounding the Capitol building. New Horizon’s security team is responsible for visitor access control, parking management, emergency response and mobile patrols.

Any state agency wanting to hire a security firm can become an authorized user and immediately contract with New Horizon Security using the contract.

With the new contract, New Horizon Security continued its corporate growth, both in terms of the number of new employees and geographic reach. The company recently ranked  1,438th  on “Inc.” magazine’s list of the nation’s 5,000 fastest growing private companies for a third year in a row, and was twice honored by the magazine’s Hire Power Awards, as the second largest small business job creator in Virginia. The new state contract increased New Horizon’s staff by another 100 security officers.
