The manager has the right to do this, but it is not very smart of him. I worked 21 years in law enforcement; I also worked 10 years in loss prevention side jobs. Although this may look like a good idea to some, it’s not, I had knives guns, and brass knuckles pulled on me at different times while doing the loss prevention jobs. I always was one step ahead of the bad guy because I had cuffs, pepper spray, and my gun as a last resort. If you are being robbed or stolen from and you are not armed and trained, do law enforcement a favor and just be the best witness you possibly can be, and go home to your family.
