Daniel Luera Jr., 35 years old, was born to Mr. and Mrs. Daniel Luera in El Paso. He was a lifelong resident of the County of El Paso and a proud graduate of Americas High School. Daniel left high school with the dream of being a Cop. In 2012, Daniel attended the El Paso Community College Basic Peace Officer Course.

His class graduated in June of 2012, and in September of the same year, Daniel applied to become a Detention Officer with the El Paso County Sheriff`s Office. He was hired on September 26th, 2012, and selected to attend the Basic Detention Officer Academy. The Detention Officer Class graduated on November 16th, 2012. Upon graduation, he was assigned to work at the Jail Annex. He later transferred to the Downtown Detention Facility and worked there until he was selected to attend the Basic Peace Officer Academy.

On January 30th, 2015, Daniel`s childhood dream came to fruition when his class graduated from the Basic Peace Officer Academy.
