I don't feel qualified to answer this. But many of those most impacted say that their safety needs would be better addressed by directing funding away from police and towards other services. So I try to listen to that.

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

This seems kind of definitional, if you take a broad understanding of public safety that includes shelter, health, and access to opportunity.

Increasing accountability for police misconduct will improve public safety.
