Jewelers' Security Alliance
Jewelers' Security Alliance (JSA) is a non-profit trade association with 21,000 members that has been providing crime information and assistance to the jewelry industry and law enforcement since 1883.
JSA fulfills its mission of informing and alerting jewelers about crime through frequent E-Mail Crime Alerts and print publication, a web site, seminars and consulting activities. JSA also works closely with the FBI and local law enforcement agencies, sharing its data and analysis in order to further the war on jewelry crime.
The Stolen Jewelry Website of the Jewelers' Security Alliance (www.stolenjewelry.org) provides a central clearinghouse for the jewelry industry, law enforcement, insurance personnel and the public to share information on jewelry that has been stolen or recovered in the United States. The listings include watches, gems and jewelry. Searches and listing are free. This database, which is the only publicly available, comprehensive website to list stolen jewelry, went live in January 2006, and will become increasingly valuable as the number of users increases and the number of items posted grows.
This service was developed through a generous grant to the Jewelers' Security Alliance from the JCK Jewelry Industry Fund.
The database associated with this website contains a listing of stolen and recovered jewelry reported to JSA. Access to this database requires online registration, including an e-mail address. Law enforcement personnel can list any recovered or stolen merchandise. Jewelers or members of the public can list stolen jewelry as long as they have filed a police report, and inform JSA of the agency with which the report was filed and the date.
Listed items are limited to jewelry, watches, diamonds and other precious gems. Art, furniture, stamps, coins, and other valuables are not eligible for listing. Items that are not identifiable or are of low value, and those that are not unique or lack distinguishing features, such as laser inscriptions, grading reports or serial numbers, may not be suitable for inclusion in the database. JSA will make a decision on each submission regarding whether the item should be included.
The Jewelers Security Alliance is committed to maintaining the privacy of those who use and report information on stolen jewelry through this website. Information reported to JSA will only be used to facilitate the investigation, identification and recovery of stolen jewelry, and will only be provided to those with a need to know, such as law enforcement personnel.
While JSA takes reasonable efforts to assure the credibility of the information contained in this website, extreme caution should be used by law enforcement and the public with respect to the data provided. This website and database is only a starting point for locating, identifying and recovering stolen jewelry merchandise.
No law enforcement or legal action should be taken without further investigation and confirmation of any information contained in this site.
JSA provides this information free, and can assume no responsibility for the accuracy of the information in this database, which has been provided to JSA by a wide variety of reporting sources.
