Fife is a local government area in Scotland. Prior to 1974 it was a county. From 1974 to 1996 it was a region with three subsidiary districts ( Dunfermline, Kirkcaldy and North-East Fife). Since 1996 it has been a unitary authority. Fife includes the towns of Kirkcaldy, Dunfermline, Glenrothes and St Andrews. Smaller towns include Newport-on-Tay, Cupar and Anstruther. Other historic places include the village of Falkland.

The Fife Constabulary was replaced in 2013 by the Police Service of Scotland.
