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."
