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.

PERIMETER

  • 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)

INTERIOR

  • 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

ELECTRONIC SECURITY

  • 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

What Jewelers Are Saying

"Someone smashed through our front door with a sledgehammer at 3:00 a.m. and ran in, only to discover that there was nothing in the showcase. And you actually see them on camera shrugging their shoulders going, there’s nothing here, and that’s because of the education that we get from Jewelers Mutual."
