Johannesburg - North and East Rand residents who want to contact the flying squad should telephone their local police stations, following a power failure at the police's Benoni radio transmitter.
Police spokesman Superintendent Eugene Opperman said on Friday the facility was still operational, running on auxiliary power, but could not process complaints at full capacity. Technicians were attending to the problem.
