Born and raised in Audubon, New Jersey, at the age 18, Bruce Simpson enlisted in the United States Air Force during Vietnam and was assigned to nuclear security. Upon an Honorable discharge, Bruce entered police work in Reading Pennsylvania.

Archbishop Simpson received his undergraduate degree (B.A.) in the legal field from the University of Central Florida in 1981. While in college, Simpson ran for and was elected to a county wide political position, unseating the incumbent. Simpson also served as Deputy Campaign manager for Lawson Lamar, Chief Assistant States Attorney in his successful run for Sheriff of Orange County, Florida. Upon graduation, Simpson was sworn in as a Commissioner of the District Court of Maryland, and Acting United States Magistrate, Pro Tem, where he served for two years prior to returning to police work as a sworn Police Officer in Prince Georges County Maryland. In his role as Court Commissioner which is known in other jurisdictions as judges, justice of the peace, or magistrates, Simpson heard high numbers of criminal cases brought before the court by Federal, State and local law enforcement agencies where initial appearances before the court were conducted, rights given, and determination of probable cause was made, as well as conditions of detention or release. Simpson also reviewed probable cause and made decisions on the issuance of arrest warrants and criminal summons. Civilly, Simpson became involved in emergency petitions of various kinds and interacted with higher-level judges on a daily basis. At one point, Simpson was rated in the top 1 percentile of all of the Commissioners in the State of Maryland by his Chief Administrative law Judge.
