He acquired this experienceas he worked his way through the system, going from step to step without missing a step. He began as a corrections officer, and was then promoted to Sergeant, Lieutenant, Captain, unit manager and deputy warden, all before becoming a warden.
Besides taking the lead with regard to the development and implementation of corrections programs in many places, during his time with WI-DOC, Brad Hompe has done just about everything. He has worked as a prison staff employee, but he also hasbeen a jail inspector, an instructor and trainer. Over the years, Brad has done it all, including jail and prison planning and design.
