Throughout his long tenure at the Wisconsin Department of Corrections (WI-DOC), Brad Hompe has gained an amazing amount of experience, given that he has done pretty much every job there is to do in a prison environment. With experience, people gain knowledge, which is one reason Brad is now considered an expert on almost every aspect of prison operations.
