TABC agent responds to active shooter situation at Lakewood Church

AUSTIN — An off-duty agent of the Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission was among multiple commissioned peace officers who responded to a shooting at Houston’s Lakewood Church around 2 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 11. TABC Agent Adrian Herrera was working off duty as a security officer at the church when a person opened fire with a long rifle in the lobby of the building. Herrera and another officer responded by engaging the shooter and neutralizing the threat. Officials from TABC’s Law Enforcement Department and the agency’s Office of Inspector General are working with local and state investigators to determine what led to the shooting. Per agency policy, Herrera has been placed on paid administrative leave pending the outcome of an internal TABC investigation into the shooting. He has been employed by TABC for approximately five years. “While we are still gathering the facts on what took place at Lakewood Church, I can say that I’m extremely proud of the quick response of our agent as well as the other law enforcement agents on the scene,” TABC Chairman Kevin Lilly said. “These officers likely prevented a much greater tragedy through their brave actions.” “TABC agents are trained to respond to situations such as this as part of their duties,” TABC Executive Director Thomas Graham said. “As Texas peace officers, each of our agents are committed to protecting lives and keeping the people of Texas safe.” The shooting remains under investigation by TABC, the Houston Police Department, and the Texas Rangers.

Free webinar to help fight human trafficking offered by TABC and Texas Restaurant Association

AUSTIN — The Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission and the Texas Restaurant Association are conducting a free webinar on Jan. 18 to educate people working in the alcoholic beverage industry on the warning signs of human trafficking and how to report it. The joint webinar is part of both groups’ efforts to commemorate Human Trafficking Prevention Month. The annual observance, announced by Gov. Greg Abbott on Jan. 3, is intended to raise awareness of human trafficking while empowering Texans to report suspected crime. TABC has a statutory directive to prevent criminal activity at TABC-licensed locations, and human trafficking is among the many crimes the agency works to stop. The webinar will help business owners and their employees identify the signs of human trafficking and report concerning activity to law enforcement, according to TABC Executive Director Thomas Graham. “Our best tool to fight human trafficking is the eyes and ears of all Texans,” Graham said. “TABC is proud to work with our partners in the Texas Restaurant Association and the alcoholic beverage industry to help make a safer Texas for all.” TABC and the TRA have a long history of partnering to promote public safety through webinars, in-person training and other initiatives. “Human trafficking is a preventable crime that occurs throughout Texas,” said Emily Williams Knight, Ed.D., TRA president and CEO. “We’re proud to work hand-in-hand with TABC to empower our industry so we can lead in the effort to stop this human trafficking in Texas.” The free online webinar begins at 2 p.m. CST Thursday, Jan. 18. Participants can register at Industry members can also request a recording of the webinar by emailing Erica Valdriz at For information on the Texas Restaurant Association, visit For more information on TABC, visit MEDIA CONTACT for TABC: Chris Porter TABC Director of Communications (512) 206-3462 –       MEDIA CONTACT for Texas Restaurant Association: ECPR Texas Nico Ramsey, (512) 516-0302 Camryn Lees, (262) 490-9380

INDUSTRY NOTICE: It's time to conduct annual compliance reports

You are required to conduct a compliance report (i.e., self-inspection) for each of your licensed/permitted locations in Texas. The report requires your business to answer a series of questions about its operations and take certain photos at its premises to confirm it is following applicable laws. When: Begin and complete your compliance report(s) anytime between *Jan. 1 and March 31, 2024. *EXCEPTION: For holders of any primary license/permit that is accompanied by a combination of subordinates and/or certificates as displayed below, you may not begin your compliance report on Jan. 1. Instead, we will contact you later in 2024 and will provide you with a different reporting period. Permit combinations that begin their report(s) on a later date P + LP     BG + BP + E BG + E     BG + BP + FB + E BG + FB +E     BG + BP + LH + E BG + LH + E     BG + BP + FB + LH + E BG + FB + LH + E     BW + SD If you hold a P, BG, or BW by itself (without the above combination of subordinates and/or certificates), you are still required to file your compliance report between Jan. 1 and March 31, 2024. It is only if you have one of the above combinations that you will begin your reports at a later date that TABC will provide you.
