Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission Agents Now Receive Investigative Training



Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission agents and auditors have received specialized investigative training.

The TABC recently trained some employees to become Certified Fraud Examiners, as part of the new investigative standards set by the agency.

The department says that the new training has already proven successful, allowing them to take part in cases including money laundering, subterfuge, false tax reporting, and illegal tier interest.

The group says in a press release that by using methods to determine where the violations are occurring instead of focusing resources on individual violations, the TABC hopes to have a larger impact on alcoholic beverage violations at a retailer level.

“If we determine a location needs additional support, we will start by offering training to promote voluntary compliance,” said Dexter Jones, assistant chief of field operations for the North Texas region.

“If repeat violations occur, we will use investigative techniques to ensure that the more apparent violations are not masking a much larger problem at the licensed alcoholic beverage location such as human trafficking, money laundering, or drugs,” Jones continued.

Funding for the training comes from the TABC’s “Retailers at Rick Preventative Grant” offered by the Texas Department of Transportation, aimed at assisting communities with reduced drinking and driving crashes and fatalities.
