Police Budgets

VenkmanVenkman BabyGroot

It looks like many major cities spend in the neighborhood of a third of their entire budget on policing. Which brings up the question, if that was cut dramatically in some of these areas, and that money instead funneled to economic development, education, health, etc, would that wash out? If LA spent $2B instead of $3B and sunk that billion into improving impoverished areas, would that eliminate the need for the policing that billion would have bought?
