Target Responsibility for Alcohol-Connected Emergencies

If someone is seriously hurt in connection with an alcohol-related incident, TABC peace officers will assist law enforcement agencies in tracing the source of the alcohol.

Examples of these incidents include DWI crashes resulting in death or serious bodily injury, aggravated assaults and sexual assaults involving overserved customers at TABC-licensed locations.

TRACE Hotline

We encourage our law enforcement and first responder partners from around the state to contact our regional TABC agents or the TRACE hotline about alcohol-related emergencies resulting in serious bodily injury.

Because the hotline is for law enforcement only, email for more information.

#TRACE Public Safety Campaign Toolkit

The Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission and Texas Department of Transportation have partnered on a public awareness campaign to prevent impaired driving and promote legal, safe, and responsible alcohol service. Share the videos below to help protect Texans. One set of videos focuses on families that have lived through tragedy related to impaired driving. The second series shows law enforcement how partnering with TABC and the TRACE unit can help them with alcohol-related cases.
