Scotland's first chief constable has retired from her £120,000 a year post.
Norma Graham, 49, of Dalkeith, unexpectedly announced in April that she would retire in August.
It is understood she will receive a lump sum plus a pension of two thirds of her salary, which is standard for police officers.
The former chief constable is currently facing an allegation that she drove carelessly and caused a crash on February 7 on the B922 Cluny to Kinglassie Road. She has denied the charge which alleges that another motorist was injured in the collision.
Graham joined Lothian and Borders Police as a cadet in 1978 aged 16. She started her career proper two years later as a bobby on the beat in her home town of Musselburgh.
She later rose to the rank of detective chief superintendent in charge of criminal investigation. During the early part of her career she undertook a number of uniformed and specialist roles including head of the force's drug squad.
Graham was appointed assistant chief constable in Central Scotland Police in 2002 and in 2005 she was strategic gold commander for the G8 summit held at Gleneagles, Perthshire.
She later moved to Fife as deputy chief constable and was awarded the Queen's Police Medal for Services to Policing in 2008.
In July that year she was promoted to chief constable. The next year, she was made vice-president of the Association of Chief Police Officers Scotland, a position she held until 2011.
Temporary chief constable Andrew Barker took over responsibility on as chief constable of Fife Constabulary on Tuesday.
Mr Barker joined Fife Constabulary in March 2009 as assistant chief constable before being promoted to the role of Deputy Chief Constable in March 2011.
Temporary assistant chief constable Tom Ewing also assumed the responsibilities of deputy chief constable from Monday. These two appointments were decided by Fife Council's Police Transition Committee earlier this month and have since been approved by the justice secretary Kenny MacAskill.
Temporary chief constable Andrew Barker said: "It is both an honour and a privilege to be asked to serve as the Chief Constable for Fife Constabulary. I will seek to build on the excellent work of Chief Constable Graham, which has seen crime in Fife reduced by 49% over the past seven years.
"Throughout my career, I have seen the benefits from partnership working and engaging with all the diverse communities we seek to serve. I am look forward to closely working with partners to help deliver the Force's vision of Taking Policing Closer to the Community and ensuring a smooth transition to the Police Service of Scotland next April."
