Situation being monitored, additional loss prevention support deployed when possible
(NEENAH, Wis.) – As a result of suspicious activity detected earlier this month within a state in the Midwest, Jewelers Mutual arranged additional surveillance for commercial lines policyholders in the immediate area.
This is the second time in the past four months Jewelers Mutual has provided additional surveillance to policyholders in ongoing efforts to keep members safe and secure. In October 2019, extra security surveillance was provided to policyholders in the state of California during widespread power outages.
As an ongoing best practice to help protect your business, Jewelers Mutual strongly encourages all jewelers to secure merchandise within a safe or vault. Jewelers should also review Jewelers Mutual’s do’s and don’ts during a jewelry store robbery. Below are a few of the don’ts:
- Don’t call police, press a hold-up alarm, or panic button
- Don’t make eye contact with or threaten the robbers in anyway
- Don’t pursue the robbers after they leave
Along with advising jewelers of what can be done to prevent crime, Jewelers Mutual will continue to monitor developing criminal situations and deploy additional targeted loss prevention services to protect commercial lines policyholders and the jewelry industry when possible.
“Jewelers Mutual is committed as a proactive business partner in the protection of jewelry and providing a safe environment to our customers,” said Larry Spicer, Vice President of Loss Prevention and Risk Management Services.
Policyholders are also encouraged to contact their agent with any questions regarding additional security measures they can leverage to protect their property.
