Shelbie Strawn started this petition to Dollar General

When you go places you want to feel safe. Whether its shopping at a grocery store or headed to clock in for your daily shift. I want to ensure that! This petition is to help show Dollar General that we need a third party security team in our Dallas stores. I personally work at  a Dollar General in Dallas and my life has been put at risk atleast ten times within a one month period; but not just me. My fellow employees and even the lives of some of our customers! Dallas is a very dangerous area. I have had a knife pulled on me, been robbed, broke into, physically punched and hurt by people trying to steal or people alterered by alcohol or drugs. The police response time is a minimum of 45 minutes unless your actively being held at gun point. And you can forget them even coming out to the store if the suspect is no longer on the premises. Over half of these dangerous incidents cant even be reported to local authority!! And this is just at work! I want my customers and my fellow employees to feel safe while they are trying to shop or just simply work. I believe that hiring a third party security team will help provide a safe environment for customers and employees. Just the presense of authority alone will have such a huge impact! We have to do something now! If we dont its going to lead to the shutdown of stores because we cant keep the store together, we cant protect the customers or ourselves, and we cant keep product on the shelf because its constantly getting stolen. My particular Dollar General is the only grocery store that is in the area for atleast 10 or 15 miles and the community really relies on it as do the employees. If we cant control it then they will take this store away from the community and then what? Please help make the Dollar General experience a safer one; whether your a shopper or an employee you are a part of a community and your vote matters!! Lets show Dollar General how to stand together and protect one another! If you have any questions or want any more information about what Im trying to do here please dont hesitate to contact! And if you have any information on how I could make a bigger statement to a corporate company please let me know by messaging me on fb or chola0094@gmail.com
