John “J.J.” Frazer, President of New Horizon Security, has been appointed Private Security Services Advisory Board Business Representative
John “J.J.” Frazer, President of New Horizon Security Services Inc., has been appointed to the Department of Criminal Justice (DCJS) Private Security Services Advisory Board (PSAAB).
The PSAAB advises the Criminal Justice Services Board (CJSB) on matters relating to the regulation of the private security industry. It is made up of 13 members, appointed by the CSJB, and represents various aspects of the private security industry. The board is the approving authority for any regulations the Department of Justice circulates, and establishes and enforces minimum training standards for both law enforcement and private security personnel, as well as criminal justice. The DCJS processes all applicants applying for a license to practice private security as well as certifies instructors of private security training schools.
“I am honored to have been selected as a member of the PSSAB, especially now when the challenges facing the security industry are becoming more complex,” said John “J.J.” Frazer, “I look forward to sharing some of the innovations we have developed at New Horizon Security, and exploring the ideas of my colleagues, to advance private security in Virginia.” Frazer will serve as the Private Security Services Business Representative for a one-year term beginning July 1, 2016. Frazer was voted to serve on the board by the Criminal Justice Services Board (CJSB).
“As a lifelong private security professional, being appointed to this position is the capstone of my 20 plus years in this field,” continued Frazer, who has a degree in Criminal Justice from James Madison University and founded New Horizon Security in 1998. It was his “security with a smile” philosophy, modeled after the Disney theme park quality approach, combined with proprietary technology, training and industry-leading employee screening practices that differentiated the Company and propelled its growth. New Horizon Security was recently honored by being named to the 2016 Inc. 5000 list of America’s fastest growing private companies for the sixth consecutive year.
“I have had great mentors at DCJS throughout my career,” added Frazer, “There have been people that have gone above and beyond to guide me and my business; I am looking forward to being able to do the same for developing companies.”
