The police authority in Lincolnshire is giving members of the public a chance to help shape its budget of more than £120m.
A new website has been launched featuring an online budget simulator which allows people to prioritise spending as well as areas for cuts.
The results will inform the budget setting decisions it takes in February, the authority said.
The budget is funded by council tax and a grant from the Home Office.
Chairman of Lincolnshire Police Authority, Barry Young, said: "Every year we consult as widely as possible in a variety of ways, from public meetings to paper surveys.
"The simulator provides a new form of consultation which we hope will prove popular.
"It will show people how policing and council tax would be affected by raising or lowering spending in certain areas of policing.
"You can control the budget by following instructions on the computer screen and using your own judgement to decide what to spend and where to spend it. It's more than just a computer game."
