MANILA – Philippine National Police (PNP) Chief Gen. Guillermo Eleazar directed the Anti-Cybercrime Group (ACG) on Tuesday to collaborate with the Department of Education (DepEd) on reports of students cheating online during the remote learning scheme.

This came after DepEd Secretary Leonor Briones requested the authorities’ help in investigating the “online kopyahan”.

“Matapos nating marinig ang paghingi ng tulong ni Secretary Liling Briones, kaagad kong inatasan ang aming Anti-Cybercrime Group na makipag-ugnayan sa Department of Education upang alamin kung paano makakatulong ang inyong PNP dito (After hearing Secretary Liling Briones’ call for help, I immediately ordered our Anti-Cybercrime Group to coordination with the DepEd to determine how the PNP can help),” Eleazar said in a statement.

According to initial reports, there was a Facebook group where students shared their exam answer keys.

Despite the coronavirus disease 2019 (Covid-19) pandemic, the School Year 2021-2022 commenced, with the distance learning program being implemented in schools across the country.

Briones stated that the agency will not tolerate any sort of cheating.

The matter is currently being investigated by the National Bureau of Investigation.
