Rachakonda commissioner Mahesh Bhagwat said that improving surveillance in vulnerable areas in the commissionerate, reducing road accidents through education and enforcement, increasing the patrolling on highways, and improving travel time, are priorities for the year 2020.
Preventing cyber crimes and economic offences will also be important.
