These days, Brad Hompe serves as a Corrections Complaint Examiner and Investigator for the Wisconsin Department of Corrections, which is better known as WI-DOC. Throughout his time with WI-DOC, Brad has done almost everything. Before he became a warden, he worked his way up the chain, from his humble beginnings as a corrections officer to being promoted to sergeant, then lieutenant, then captain, until he was made a unit manager and deputy warden before becoming warden and moving on from there.

One reason Brad Hompe is considered one of the best and most experienced prison experts in the country could very well be due to his impressive education. Following his high school, Brad went on to earn a Bachelor's Degree in criminal justice and psychology from Minnesota’s Winona State University and followed that up with a Master’s Degree in Public Administration (MPA) from the University of Wisconsin at Oshkosh. He has never actually stopped learning, as he has gone on to gain a number of certifications in law enforcement and one as a firefighter, which he received from Southwest Technical College in Fennimore, Wisconsin.
