More police, less police, more social workers, less social workers. Neither approach will work because neither address the reason either need to exist.
As usual, this is about money. The politicians will immediately begin trying to cut from the budget in any scenario. Police states don’t last and are undesirable. And armies of social workers will be underfunded. And neither situation addresses the social stratification, abhorrent behaviour, and poor values that the monetary socioeconomic system brings to the table which causes the need for the police and the social workers.
The only solution I see is to eliminate the monetary system and base society on the scientific method. Think about it.
