Janis Bane, now a Training Consultant for Training Strategies, Inc., has worked throughout the Harris County Community Supervision and Corrections Department for the past 20 years and has trained probation officers in Strategies for Case Supervision and Certification for TDCJ-CJAD since 1992. Because she believes good case management is the key to successful supervision, she is able to convince non-believers in the value of case classification scores and a well-developed supervision plan. Janis’ interactive training style, her enthusiasm for her work, and her commitment to the goals of community supervision make her training sessions an energetic, informative, useful, and positive learning experience for participants. You will walk away from her class with a better understanding of the values of case management skills
