"As Enforcement supervisor for Region 1, he'll oversee agents operating across a huge area of Texas. I know he's more than up to the challenge."

Parent was promoted to Lieutenant and moved to the El Paso Area Office in 2017. During his tenure at TABC, Parent has served as a counselor and instructor during TABC's New Agent Trainee Academy and was an original member of the agency's Special Response Team as well as a physical readiness coordinator.
