NORFOLK, Va., May 1 (UPI) -- The U.S. Transportation Security Administration says it has named a new federal security director for the Norfolk International Airport.

TSA officials announced the appointment of Jeff Horowitz as the new head of federal security at Norfolk. Horowitz, who has been with the TSA since 2002, will also oversee the security operations at Newport News/ Williamsburg International Airport which along with the Norfolk International Airport covers the air traffic for the Hampton Roads metropolitan area.

Horowitz, a former New York City Police officer, has served as the assistant federal security director of screening at Long Island MacArthur Airport and has been a member of the National Advisory Council among other security advisory related assignments.

"As someone who has risen through the ranks at TSA, Jeff brings an immense amount of knowledge about the security operation to his current capacity as federal security advisor," Mo McGowan, TSA assistant administrator for security operations, said in a statement. "His leadership and dedication to the mission will ensure we continue to build on the strong foundation of security established at Norfolk."
