Hello, my name is Blake Hoefs, I began my law enforcement career in 2005 and have a bachelor's degree in Criminal Justice. I was hired by the Madison Police Department in 2013 and attended the accelerated academy. I work afternoon patrol out of the east district. I am a field training officer, lifesaving award recipient, and a member of MPD PRIDE. MPD Pride is a LGBT resource group comprised of LGBT officers and allies within the Madison Police Department. Our mission is to serve as a resource to employees within MPD by providing information and support in light of the unique challenges with which LGBT individuals are often faced. In addition, we serve as the points-of-contact for members of Madison's LGBT community at large, working to cultivate trust and to offer an added level of support to LGBT individuals in need of police services.
I grew up in central Wisconsin and moved to Madison in 2011. During my free time, my hobbies include: kayaking, softball, cooking, DIY projects, acoustic music, and entertaining my 5 year old dog.
