The Police Service is looking into reports from the Ministry of Education of teachers being verbally abused and disrespected during their online classes.
Secondary School teachers reported instances of such abuse to the Cyber and Social Media Unit (CSMU) of the TTPS since the commencement of online teaching this week.
The TTPS advised that such conduct should cease immediately and it will be working with both internal and external stakeholders to investigate and prosecute such behaviour. It said online classes should be safe spaces for both teachers and students alike.
Teachers were urged to take all available measures to protect themselves and their students during their online sessions.
The TTPS advised teachers to record their online teaching sessions to identify disruptive and abusive behaviour and mute or remove abusive persons from the online teaching platform.
