Fife Division

The Fife Division covers 1,325 sq. km between the Forth and Tay estuaries. The population, of around 402,600 predominantly reside in a number of large towns including Glenrothes, Dunfermline, Kirkcaldy, Lochgelly and Methil. Fife also has rural areas, particularly in North East Fife.

The Division has three territorial command areas all aligned to one local authority.

Each area is served by a number of community policing teams. These teams are built around the needs of local people. They are responsible for responding to calls in the local area, as well as looking for long term solutions to key issues.
