THE magazine produced for operationally ready national servicemen from the police and civil defence forces will get a facelift.

HomeTeamNS, a bi-monthly publication, will have a better design and a variety of features, including health and investment tips and restaurant reviews, among others.

Present at the signing ceremony between HomeTeamNS and SPH Magazines yesterday were (front row, from left) Mr Dennis Pua, managing director of SPH Magazines; Mr Loh Yew Seng, CEO of SPH Magazines; Senior Assistant Commissioner Jackson Lim, HomeTeamNS; and (back row, from left) Mr Alan Chan, SPH chief executive and chairman of SPH Magazines; Police Commissioner Khoo Boon Hui; Senior Minister of State for Law and Home Affairs Ho Peng Kee; and Commissioner of Singapore Civil Defence Force James Tan.

The magazine goes out to members of the HomeTeamNS association and has a circulation of 155,000.

The association yesterday inked a deal with SPH Magazines for it to write and publish the magazine.

SPH Magazines has been the association's long-time partner, having published its magazine since 1999, when it was still known as Res-Q.
At the signing ceremony held in Singapore Press Holdings' Media Centre in Genting Lane, Senior Minister of State for Law and Home Affairs Ho Peng Kee said it was important to reach out to NSmen, and that the magazine was a tool for 'creating a sense of identity' among the association's NSmen members and keeping the 'bridge' between NSmen and the association strong.
