The jewelry store is filled with high-value items, attracting the attention of not only buyers but also robbers. To keep the jewelry safe, you need a physical guard. The very fact of the presence of a polite and presentable security service increases the status of the store in the eyes of visitors and makes it clear to potential robbers that the place is under reliable protection.

Security in jewelry stores: types and features

Salons, shops and jewelry departments, due to the high cost and high value of goods, need round-the-clock security services. They must have a physical guard, in the role of which are well-trained, strong and presentable employees who have a quick reaction, observation and the ability to follow every little thing.

Criminals often plan to rob a jewelry store in advance.

They study the building and the territory, weaknesses, features in work, the nature of the staff. Therefore, professional security guards already at the planning stage identify such suspicious persons and take lawful actions.

There are three types of security for jewelry stores:

  • physical;
  • technical protection;
  • complex method.

Physical security is carried out by trained people with or without weapons. Control and protection of the premises can be around the clock or during working hours. Technical protection includes a CCTV camera system, motion sensors, an emergency call button and other equipment. Comprehensive measures consist of a combination of physical security and technical protection. These methods are most proven for jewelry boutiques.

Choosing any of the types of protection, during an unforeseen situation with intruders, it is necessary to involve a rapid response team. Constant monitoring of the situation and the rapid arrival of the capture service will provide a reliable level of protection.

Law enforcement experts argue that comprehensive security techniques are needed to effectively protect jewelry salons. They include video surveillance, an alarm, an emergency button, special armored safes with fire-resistant data, protection of windows and doors.

Physical security requirements

Jewelry boutique guards must match the level of the establishment. In the process of work, they can use special means, firearms and pneumatic weapons, which depends on the discharge received.

The main duties of security guards include:

  • control over the observance of law and order and the behavior of visitors;
  • checking employees after the end of the working day;
  • ensuring the protection of personnel and material assets in the event of unforeseen situations;
  • suppression of attempts to steal jewelry;
  • detention of intruders and their transfer to the police.

Before the start of the provision of security services, they are determined with the required number of employees. The calculation takes into account the peculiarities of the location of the object, its area and the placement of showcases inside the premises. If the object is located inside a shopping center, one or two people will be enough. If the salon is located in a separate building, the number of people should be higher.

Since the safety of jewelry stores and departments is in an increased risk zone, security personnel should be selected with special physical and psychological training. In this case, the most effective option would be armed guards of the 6th category. For unarmed guards, a 4th or 5th grade is enough.

General requirements for physical security with or without weapons:

  • excellent physical fitness;
  • availability of a certificate of good health;
  • ability to provide first aid;
  • no criminal record.

The appearance of the security service also plays an important role, since the trust of visitors to the store depends on it.

Initially, the security service is not subordinate to the salon employees and operates autonomously, since it is not the staff of the jewelry company. Therefore, a regulation is drawn up, which prescribes the power of the administration. The store representatives have the right to assess the quality of the work of the security, make comments on the instructions and ask work questions.

The security guard is obliged to draw the attention of the administration to non-compliance with safety, demand the elimination of defects, and in the event of emergencies, supervise the employees of the store.

Organization of security

The organization of a physical security strategy in a jewelry store takes into account factors such as the location of the establishment, the degree of security, the area of the territory, the opening hours and technical devices for protection. After the analysis of the facility, protective measures are provided, which include the following requirements:

  • installation of technical means of protection;
  • provision of fire and burglar alarms;
  • the complexity of the provision of services;
  • duty at security posts.

It is important to install an armored safe with a high security class in the store. Initially, negotiations are held with the management of the salon and recommendations for the protection of the object are offered. Then an instruction is prepared for the personnel of the private security company. At this stage, the working form of the security is agreed. After negotiations and the solution of working nuances, an agreement is concluded and a security post is installed.

The security of jewelry stores requires special training of personnel and an integrated approach, so it is important to entrust this work to a trusted security organization. Highly qualified security personnel will help:

  • qualitatively protect the object from threats;
  • provide reliable protection for jewelry;
  • first aid;
  • no criminal record.
