Jewelers Specialty Insurance Services (JSIS) provides Risk Management and Insurance policies to jewelry companies nationwide. Recent trends in jewelry crime, and the necessity of coverage, leads to the renewed promotion of proper insurance policies and mitigation of risks.
Online PR News – 13-May-2014 – Los Angeles, CA – According to Jewelers Security Alliance’s 2013 Annual Crime Report, “on-premises crime categories indicate a 17.7 percent increase in dollar losses and a 6.5 percent decrease in criminal events.” While jewelry crime in 2013 decreased, the value of stolen items increased by 17.7%. Furthermore, according to JSA’s annual report, “Off premises losses totaled 40 in 2014, the lowest in the last 30 years.” JSIS encourages all jewelry distributors, retailers, and manufacturers to protect themselves, their businesses and staff by utilizing the proper training and tools to ensure the safest practices. Further, all owners should be regularly evaluating coverage and limits of their insurance policies to insure adequate protection. This startling new statistic only fuels JSIS to assist businesses in creating a safe plan of action to protect business assets.
Benjamin Meskin, President of JSIS, commented “The studies and findings of JSA remind us of the importance of having Jewelers Block Policies in place. Many jewelers, irrespective of distribution classification, tend to believe that they do not need coverage because most risk and losses occur off-premises and that the likelihood of having a loss at an office location is rare; however, JSA’s report contradicts this conception and sheds light on how vulnerable business can be at any place and at any time. Further, it shows that criminals change and their methods can never be predicted.”
