The police and crime commissioner for Lincolnshire has recommended an almost 2 percent increase in the amount people pay towards the police in their council tax . In turn Alan Hardwick says the force won't have to make job cuts.
It is just a week since the Chief Constable and Mr Hardwick asked the Policing Minister for money from a special grant - because of concerns about the impact Government cutbacks could have on officer numbers.

For the first time ever the Poppy Appeal in Yorkshire has reached the £3 million mark at this stage of the year.
And it's money that can really make an impact, not just for veterans themselves but also their whole family, as Martin Fisher found out.
Nearly £750,000 seized from criminals in West Yorkshire has been put back in to the community in the last year.
Hundreds of charities and voluntary groups have benefitted from the Safer Communities Fund, at a time when many find themselves more squeezed than ever before.
But the figure could be twice as high. Half the money that's collected here through the Proceeds of Crime Act finds its way in to Government coffers - something West Yorkshire's Police and Crime Commissioner wants to change.

A car belonging to the Huddersfield-born Prime Minister Harold Wilson has gone on the market for £25,000. He ran the Labour Government for two terms in the 1960s and 70s - and his preferred mode of transport was the Austin Princess Vanden Plas. Fitted with a high speed gear box and with only eight thousand miles on the clock - experts reckon it is something of a bargain. Matt Price reports
The weather brought parts of the region to a standstill yesterday as snow flurries descended during rush hour - many journeys to work took hours instead of minutes.
Snowmageddon day two didn't really emerge, but those living in higher parts of West and South Yorkshire and Derbyshire are still facing problems due to the plunging temperatures.

A mother who lost her son in Afghanistan is calling for streets to be named after all those who died in the campaign. Elaine Bell from Bradford lost her paratrooper son Martin four years ago.
Martin is already set to have a road named after him in his home town. Now his mother wants the same honour given to all service personnel killed in the conflict. Mark Witty reports.
A court has heard more details about the days leading up to the arrest of a man accused of stabbing a hotel landlady to death.
John Heald is charged with murdering Bei Carter at her guest house in Bridlington in July last year. He was arrested following a major search by police, more than a week later.
Today, a friend of John Heald gave evidence at his murder trial - describing how he didn't believe John when he said he thought he'd killed someone.
