The chief constable of Fife Constabulary has announced he is to retire after seven years in the job.
The Chief Constable will step down from his post in May
Peter Wilson will step down from his post in May. He will formally advise the Police, Fire and Safety Committee of Fife Council later this month.
He has been chief constable in Fife since April 2001 and began his police career in 1973.
Mr Wilson took a leading role at Lockerbie, running the major incident computer database Holmes.
He began with Edinburgh City Police where he worked his way through the ranks, largely in CID and leading the force's fraud squad.
Three months before becoming chief constable in Fife, Mr Wilson was made assistant inspector of constabulary for Scotland.
In his letter to the clerk to the police authority, Mr Wilson said: "I have enjoyed an immensely satisfying career, but recognised the time to look forward was right with a new police authority having settled in after the elections last May, and a new budget cycle about to begin.
"There is much still to be done during my remaining months in office, and I look forward to continuing that work with my customary energy while the authority begin the process of selecting my successor."
