Secure and Protect Your Business and Your Staff
Developing a robust safety and security plan for your jewelry business doesn’t have to be complicated.
P.I.E.C.E. Together Your Plan
P.I.E.C.E. (Perimeter, Interior, Electronic Security, Container, and Education and Training) is an easy way to remember the critical elements of any safety and security plan.
Control and manage who enters/exits with lock door buzzer
Installation of exterior cameras that monitor sidewalk/street level of entry
Reinforced exterior glass and glazing
Require removal of any identity-obscuring clothing items –
especially those that cover the face (ball caps, masks, sun-glasses)
Display high-value merchandise away from entrances and exits – ideally placing it further back in your store to prevent quick and easy access
Disperse high value merchandise throughout the store in different show cases where possible
Never cover showcases when closed to business – this signals there are items of value underneath and not put away
Create a guest seating or viewing area for high value merchandise separate from the rest of your store displays
Maintain two forms of alarm transmission – internet (primary) and adaptive cellular (secondary) is preferred to ensure line security
Motion detection (4-step), door/window contacts, glass breakage
Sensors — Water and temperature, shock and vibration and GPS tracking
Cameras mounted at eye level with 360 views, remote monitoring and verified video response are preferred
TRTL30x6 Safes and Class 1 vaults are preferred
Locate safes away from shared or common walls
Minimum 7mil glazing on showcases
