Local business receives coin and thanks

 

Detective Chad Syphers recently presented Republic Jewelry (Center Street) with an Auburn Police Department “Challenge Coin.” The coin, presented to owner Dan Cunliffe II, was given in recognition of Republic’s efforts to help reduce property crime in Auburn.The Department has a community recognition program in which officers and staff are encouraged to present one of the agency’s commemorative coins to a citizen who they feel has gone ‘above and beyond’ in service to the community. The officers explain to the Chief why they presented their coin, and are given a replacement to continue the recognition. The citizen receives a letter of thanks from the Chief.“This is the first coin we have presented to a business,” said Crowell. “Republic is a large buyer of jewelry and coins, and they are often our first line of defense in locating stolen items.” Republic Jewelry works closely with APD officers and detectives, and their team has assisted in recovering numerous items over the years, allowing them to be returned to their rightful owners.“It’s clear that Republic goes out of their way to assist law enforcement in the recovery of stolen property and apprehension of criminal offenders,” said Detective Syphers.
