TABC has a rich history in law enforcement. We highly value military veterans for the unique experience, skills and discipline they bring to their work.
In addition to giving veteran’s preference in the hiring process, TABC and our partners provide support to eligible Texas veterans who want to start a business in the alcoholic beverage industry. Learn more about how we support veterans within the agency and across Texas.
State law requires state agencies to give preference to qualified veterans, surviving spouses of veterans and orphans of veterans in the job selection process. TABC takes great pride in fulfilling this charge. You can reach our veterans liaison at 512-206-3220 or email@example.com to learn more.
If you apply for a job at TABC and believe you’ve been denied your right to veteran’s preference, you can file an appeal with us. File the appeal by email, phone call or regular mail to:
