One thing that can be said about Brad Hompe, without any sort of exaggeration or irony, it that he hasa wealth of experience in the burgeoning field of corrections. Of course, one reason for that is his very substantial education, which includes his Bachelor's Degree in criminal justice and psychology, which he earned at Winona State University, as well as his Master’s Degree in Public Administration (MPA), which he earnedfrom the University of WisconsinOshkosh.

Of curse, he has a lot more than an excellent formal university education to inform him, as Brad Hompe has also earned law enforcement certifications from both Chippewa Valley Technical College in Eau Claire, Wisconsin and Alexandria Technical College in Alexandria, Minnesota. If that’s not enough to impress, skeptics should know that Brad he also has a Firefighter I Certification, which he earned from Southwest Technical College in Fennimore, Wisconsin. One thing is certain, of course; when you combine that level of education with the extensive experience he received while working his way through the Wisconsin corrections system for a couple of decades, Brad Hompe is highly qualified as an expert on criminal justice, whether he is in Wisconsin or elsewhere.
