Police and crime commissioner Alan Hardwick and Lincolnshire County Council are joining forces to help make the county a safer place.

The authority and the elected commissioner have agreed to work closely on addressing antisocial behaviour, domestic violence and re-offending.

They also plan better support for victims of crime and will help Lincoln Prison make further improvements.

Mr Hardwick said: "This agreement will help me meet my goals of more visible policing, a reduction in crime and better support for victims."

Martin Hill, leader of the county council, added: "We already work closely with the police, providing £1.5 million each year to help fund the county's PCSOs. But we feel more can be done.

"Over the next couple of years we'll be funding a number of projects that will have a direct impact on these priority areas."

    I agree - Mr Hardwick is a total waste of space, bereft of any idea whatsoever but constantly keeping himself in the public eye with amatuer hour PR articles. This will be a long 4 years - how do we force an early change?

    This "News" is about 15 years out of Date Police have had a statutory responsibility to work with Local Authorities to tackle crime and anti-social behaviour since Sec 5 of the Crime and Disorder Act was introduced back in 1998. Sorry, but recycling old news is not going to impress me, I want to see some progress on the promises he made at the hustings
