(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.

John Kennedy, president of JSA, said, “While JSA is sad that we cannot present these awards in person as we usually do at our Annual January Luncheon in New York, we are pleased to invite all JSA’s members, friends and supporters to be with us virtually for the awards ceremony, and a presentation on “The State of Crime in the Jewelry Industry; 2021.”

Wilkerson Testimonials

If It’s Time to Consolidate, It’s Time to Call Wilkerson

When Tom Moses decided to close one of the two Moses Jewelers stores in western Pennsylvania, it was time to call in the experts. After reviewing two candidates, Moses, a co-owner of the 72 year-old business, decided to go with Wilkerson. The sale went better than expected. Concerned about running it during the pandemic, Moses says it might have helped the sale. “People wanted to get out, so there was pent-up demand,” he says. “Folks were not traveling so there was disposable income, and we don’t recall a single client commenting to us, feeling uncomfortable. It was busy in here!” And perhaps most importantly, Wilkerson was easy to deal with, he says, and Susan, their personal Wilkerson consultant, was knowledgeable, organized and “really good.” Now, the company can focus on their remaining location — without the hassle of carrying over merchandise that either wouldn’t fit or hadn’t sold. “The decision to hire Wilkerson was a good one,” says Moses.
