Police commissionerate will be set up in Nizamabad soon as the state government issues orders. It is believed that the decision will improve the law and order situation in and around the city. The existing five police stations, traffic, women, central crime station and rural police stations will be included in the commissionerate.
Nizamabad is prone to offences as the district borders Maharashtra and Karnataka states. Inter-state dacoit gangs frequently commit thefts in the city. In addition road accidents, thefts, murders, white collar offences are on the rise. Traffic snarls are also frequently seen in the city.
There has been no upgradation in the police system in Nizamabad for the last 20 years. All existing police stations in district headquarters were set up in early 1990s.
