Complaint / review text:
Did you know that your store employee's in Hackleburg Al. 35564. Are working as an active branch of local law enforcement. Recently one of your employees there confided in my son and cautioned him that Dollar General of Hackleburg was keeping track of purchases and activities of their customers at the Hackleburg location and reporting these activities to the H, burg Police Dept. Specifically Chief Hallmark. The employee was unhappy with this situation, feeling that being involved in this activity compromised their values and was unethical, besides being illegal. I am supportive of the H, burg PD and their work but I am not supportive of this method of criminal investigation. I feel that it crosses a line of conduct that undermines the foundation of my community and places H, burg DG employees in an inappropriate position. Some of these employees are long time my friends, Hackleburg is a small, rural community. Local codes and norms of social behavior are still enforced here.in this setting this activity by DG employees will be perceived as social deviance and will result in a pushback reflecting negatively on Dollar General as a whole and diminished profit at this location in particular.
