State Prison System has Lost 240 Computers, State Auditor Says

SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) - Illinois' auditor has found that the state's prison systems have lost 240 computers.

Illinois Auditor General Bill Holland released the audits on Tuesday. Lee Enterprises newspapers reports the audits found 156 computers were unaccounted for at the Illinois Department of Corrections and 84 computers were lost at the Illinois Department of Juvenile Justice.

Holland called the losses problematic because it increases the risk of exposing confidential information. Corrections and Juvenile Justice officials told auditors they would investigate the missing computers.

In June the auditor found more than 250 computers unaccounted for at Southern Illinois University.

State officials estimate the value of the missing SIU and prison computers at $639,000.
