MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - The Wisconsin Corrections Department will get just over $5 million in state tax dollars to investigate itself and upgrade its technology. 

The Legislature's Joint Finance Committee voted Wednesday to approve $936,000 to create a new office that will investigate misconduct allegations against staffers and prisoners. 

About $4.3 million was allocated to improve the Corrections Department's computer technology. 

Thirty-six new positions will be created to improve and replace older software, and provide technical support for the agency's records of offenders.
