Jewelers’ Security Alliance to Honor Jewelers Mutual Executive and Federal Agent

David Sexton and James Liscinsky will receive awards at the JSA’s annual luncheon

The Jewelers’ Security Alliance (JSA) will honor David Sexton and James Liscinsky at its annual luncheon on Jan. 9 at the Harmonie Club in New York City.

Sexton is the vice president for loss prevention consulting at Jewelers Mutual Insurance Co. He serves on the boards of JSA and Jewelers Vigilance Canada as well as on the security systems council for Underwriters Laboratories. He will be presented with the Industry Service Award.

“Dave has one of the sharpest and most experienced minds in jewelry loss prevention and is the first person JSA turns to in order to discuss difficult issues involving preventing crimes against jewelers,” said JSA president John Kennedy. “JSA could never be as strong as it is without his help and the partnership of the great company he works for.”

Liscinsky, senior special agent with the U.S. Department of Justice’s Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives, will also be honored at the luncheon. He will receive the James B. White Award.

“This is the first time JSA has honored an agent from ATF,” said Kennedy. “The diamond, jewelry, and watch industry is deeply appreciative of Jim’s help in making the industry safer and his agency’s outstanding work and commitment.”

Liscinsky’s investigative work resulted in the arrest and conviction of eight gang members who carried out at least 15 violent robberies of traveling jewelry salespeople in six states.
