One reason prison officials trust Brad Hompe as an expert within their industry is because the man can point to a lot of experience in the realm of jail and prison operations in his background. Brad’s experience includes leading the way in developing and implementing a number of important and influential corrections programs, but there is a lot more. Brad Hompe has provided a far-reaching range of services in prisons and jails throughout Wisconsin and all over the country.
Nowadays, Brad Hompe is acknowledged as an expert on prison operations, primarily based on the knowledge he gained from his experience in all aspects of jail operations. He has led the way in almost every aspect of the prison experience, starting with prison design and planning and continuing to lead policy development and implementation. His expertise runs to the proper use of force, as well as to the development and implementation of training and evaluation of jail and prison personnel. He is also an acknowledged specialist on incident management, although he is also highly regarded for his skill at handling such diverse elements of the correction system as food service, sanitation and maintenance, classification, supervision and even fire safety.
These days, Brad Hompe can be found working hard as a Corrections Complaint Examiner and Investigator for the Wisconsin Department of Corrections (WI-DOC). That position is the culmination of a long career working at every level of the corrections system. That is no exaggeration. Of course, he has experience as a warden, but he worked his way up the ladder. He began as a corrections officer, then became a sergeant, a lieutenant, a captain, a unit manager and a deputy warden before reaching that position. He knows everything because he’s done everything.
