(PRESS RELEASE) NEW YORK — Jewelers’ Security Alliance announced the names of the recipients of its annual awards which will be presented at a virtual Zoom event on Wednesday, January 6, 2020 at 2:00 p.m.. Receiving the 22nd Annual James B. White Award to Law Enforcement are FBI Special Agent Ivan Romo and Los Angele Police Department Detective Dennis Bopp. Both serve on the FBI Major Theft Task Force based in Los Angeles, and have conducted important investigations involving South American theft gangs and Chilean burglary gangs that target the jewelry industry.

Receiving JSA’s 16th annual Industry Service Award is Joe Barnard, Director of Stores for Bernie Robbins Jewelers, an Official Rolex Jeweler that has branches in New Jersey and Pennsylvania. Barnard hosts a crime prevention network that shares information on crimes and suspects with a large group of similar stores, and provides valuable insights on current retail jewelry practices to JSA.

Wilkerson Testimonials

Retirement Made Easy with Wilkerson

The store was a landmark in Topeka, Kansas, but after 80 years in business, it was time for Briman’s Leading Jewelers to close up shop. Third generation jeweler and owner Rob Briman says the decision wasn’t easy, but the sale that followed was — all thanks to Wilkerson. Briman had decided a year prior to the summer 2020 sale that he wanted to retire. With a pandemic in full force, he had plenty of questions and concerns. “We had no real way to know if we were going to be successful or have a failure on our hands,” says Briman. “We didn’t know what to expect.” But with Wilkerson in charge, the experience was “fantastic” and now there’s plenty of time for relaxing and enjoying a more secure retirement. “I would recommend Wilkerson to any retailer considering a going-out-of-business sale,” says Briman. “They’ll help you reach your financial goal. Our experience was a tremendous success.”
