Divisional Commander

The Chief Superintendent for Fife Division is Colin Gall.

Fife Division

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.

For regular crime prevention advice and updates on what’s happening across the Division, you can like ‘Fife Police Division’ on Facebook and follow ‘@FifePolice’ on Twitter.

Community Speedwatch

Community Speedwatch is a voluntary scheme driven by members of the community, and is supported by Police Scotland (Fife Division) and Fife Community Safety Partnership. Essentially, it is a high visibility deterrent which strives to encourage motorists to reduce their speed, thus improving the safety and quality of lives of the local community. 

Community Speedwatch is about speed monitoring rather than enforcement. It involves approved volunteers, in high visibility clothing, recording details of vehicles travelling above the speed limit at pre-approved sites. The volunteers use equipment approved by the home office and they are trained to operate the devices in accordance with manufacturer’s guidelines. The records generated are forwarded to Police Scotland who write to the registered keepers advising them of their speed and reminding them to obey the speed limits in built up areas.
