The expansion will create six new jobs in Virginia Beach and retain the existing 22 full-time positions in the city, with average annual salaries exceeding $80,000.

Point One USA, LLC provides training for military and law enforcement professionals to help counter the growing threat of terrorism. The company currently has two other facilities in Virginia Beach, including its corporate headquarters, and one in San Diego.

The Virginia Beach Economic Development Authority has approved an Economic Development Investment Program grant of $30,000 based on Point One USA, LLC's capital investment of $1.05 million in real estate and business property and job creation.

"We are pleased to keep this dynamic company in the city and feel that the strong business climate here has helped propel its growth," said Virginia Beach Economic Development Director Warren D.
