I would increase what we pay the police though in a lot of cities to help them get more resources, however.
There isn't enough money or manpower to effectively supply enough assets to constantly police our entire nation. That's a good thing. I'd rather not live in a police state. Luckily we still do have citizens who will, if allowed, help to guard our society. Thankfully we have a founding document that allows that to happen if it is adhered to.
