PUBLIC CONSULTATION SURVEY
As always, the public consultation survey runs throughout the year and helps us to identify local policing priorities. The survey only takes a few minutes to complete and can be found at:
Community Speedwatch is a voluntary scheme driven by members of the community. It is supported by Police Scotland (Fife Division) and the 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.

LOCAL POLICING PLAN 2017 – 2020
The plan outlines our Policing Priorities over three years and details how we will deliver them with a view to “Keeping the Kingdom Safe”. The plan looks to deliver on what you, the people of Fife, have told us you want us to focus on. On this basis, we have developed five Local Policing Priorities, which are:
- OPERATION PREVAIL: Anti-Social Behaviour
- OPERATION PROSPECT: Substance Misuse
- OPERATION PRINCIPLE: Acquisitive Crime
- OPERATION PATH: Violent Crime
- OPERATION PARAMOUNT: Road Safety
In addition to these priorities and operations, we cannot lose sight of other national issues and priorities. These include a focus on Serious and Organised Crime, our on-going response to the threat from Terrorism in Scotland and protecting those in our community who are at risk of harm particularly as they travel from place to place and/or attend events. To this end, our Fife Operations Planning Team work closely with Fife Council, event organisers and other emergency services to ensure events in Fife are safe and enjoyable.

All incidents should be reported as soon as possible by telephone on one of the following numbers:
Please do not report incidents or crime by email, as mailboxes are not monitored 24/7.
Information relating to incidents can be passed anonymously to the independent charity “Crime Stoppers” by phoning 0800 555 111 (not for emergency calls).
The public counter at Dalgety Bay Police Station is usually open Monday to Friday, between 9am and 5pm (closed between 12.30pm and 1.30pm). Unfortunately, this can sometimes change at short notice.
