SAF to allow camera phones in 15 more camps

It’s been almost 1 year since Mindef allow use of camera phone in 14 camps. The pilot security zoning programme was welcomed by Regulars, NSF and NSmen when it was introduced in 1 September 2012.

Starting from 1 September 2013, Mindef will be expanding the number of Army camps that allow camera phone from 14 to 29 camps. The colour zoning rule still apply. Camera phones are only allowed in the Green Zones. All camera phones are to be deposited in designated lockers before entering the Red Zones.
