Whether or not and to what extent this is the case will depend on what the extra budget is used for. The evidence base differs across options (manpower, training programmes, equipment, etc.). A general statement is thus difficult to make.

Increasing social service budgets (e.g. housing, health, education) will improve public safety.

The specific answer may again differ by what exactly the budget is allocated to. A general statement is thus difficult, but overall the evidence suggests improvements in public safety.

Increasing accountability for police misconduct will improve public safety.

There is much more to be learned about accountability for police misconduct and public safety, including and going beyond excessive force by police.
