10-Year-Old Fighting Cancer Becomes Honorary TABC Agent

HOUSTON — Leaders from the Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission inducted 10-year-old Devarjaye Daniel as an honorary TABC Enforcement Agent on Jan. 24.  Devarjaye — currently battling cancer in his brain and spine — wants to join 100 law enforcement agencies and hopes to have a full-time career in law enforcement when he grows up.  He’s joined the ranks of nearly a dozen law enforcement agencies since last year, including the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency, Texas Department of Public Safety and multiple local agencies.  Leaders from TABC joined members of Devarjaye’s family for Monday’s swearing-in.  TABC is Texas’ third-largest law enforcement agency and is responsible for regulating all businesses which manufacture, distribute and sell alcohol.
