• Education Security

    New Horizon was founded as the premier security provider for students visiting the Washington DC metropolitan area. Our education security division serves multiple facets of the education system including private and public schools, colleges, and universities.

    Currently, New Horizon security officers are assigned to the largest multi-campus community college in the United States, patrolling multiple campuses and satellite offices. New Horizon supplements the college’s police department to provide comprehensive security coverage safeguarding over 100,000 students, faculty, and visitors daily, as well as the college property itself.

    In addition to higher level education security, New Horizon also implements officers in public and private school campuses in the Mid-Atlantic region. Providing school security officers is a delicate balancing act between tactical skill and friendly, approachable customer service-oriented security.

    We also provide floor monitors and hotel security officers for student tour groups visiting the Washington DC metropolitan area and historical sites throughout Virginia. These student travel security officers, as well as all of our education security officers, have received specialized training to ensure the safety and well-being of all students.
