MOPAC response

Since November 2012, records appear to show that there have not been any secondments from the wider GLA family.

LFEPA response

Eighteen members of staff have been seconded out of the LFB in the past 5 years.  Those members of staff have been seconded to the following organisations:

Greater London Authority;

Metropolitan Police Service;

Local Government Association;

Department for Communities, and Local Government;

Home Office; 

Chief Fire Officers Association;

London Borough of Enfield;

Fire Service College; and

other Fire and Rescue Services.

Secondments typically last for up to a maximum of 2 years, but may be extended longer in exceptional circumstances depending upon the role.  During the same period six officers from other Fire and Rescue Services have been seconded into the LFB to assist with the development of National Operational Guidance. This work is ongoing and new secondment opportunities will arise from this programme of work.
