    Kane is originally from upstate New York and holds a Bachelor of Science in Criminal Justice from the University of Tulsa, a Master of Arts in Criminal Justice and Police Administration from Sam Houston State University, and a Master of Education in Administration and Supervision from the University of Houston in Victoria.
