Jewelers and Law Enforcement Can Share Crime Info on JSA Web Site

JSA has added a “Crime Message Center” to its Web site, www.jewelerssecurity.org, which allows jewelers and law enforcement personnel to post information about crime against the jewelry industry.

JSA said the added feature to the Web site “is another important step in sharing crime information, which is a vital factor in preventing crime and in the arrest of suspects.”

The message center is funded by the JCK Industry Fund.

Jewelers with crime information or advice to share about suspicious circumstances, attempts, completed crimes, suspects or methods, can go to the top of the JSA Web site homepage and visit the box entitled, “Crime Message Center.” There are two options: “Post Messages” or “Read Messages.” Those using the message center must provide their email address as part of the registration process, which will be used for subsequent log-ins.

JSA said it hopes the new service “will allow all jewelers to help spread timely comments about crimes to their colleagues in the industry.”

Law enforcement personnel can use this service to request assistance from members of the jewelry industry in connection with jewelry crime investigations, JSA said. It is also a way for local crime prevention networks of jewelers to share their information with neighboring localities and a national audience.
