Native speaking instructor crime prevention education

[Update]

It turns out the Gyeongsangnamdo Police Agency already carried out the same crime prevention education for about 370 native speaking public school teachers on October 23.

This was published in The Gyeongnam Domin Ilbo on November 17:
Gyeongsangnamdo Police Agency carried out crime prevention education for native speaking instructors. At Jindong Elementary School in Changwon on the 13th Sergeant Kim Jong-hwa of the Agency’s foreign affairs section spoke to around 50 elementary, middle and high school native speaking instructors in English and explained, on a case by case basis, how crimes arise due to cultural differences.
This sounds like a good idea, but isn't there a better name than "native speaking instructor crime prevention education"?

Why only for native speaking instructors and no other types of native speaker?

Well, it's better than this: "More ad hoc smoke-and-mirrors BS to distract from a grossly dysfunctional and unprofessional system of EFL education, and by the way native French, German, Russian, Japanese and Chinese language instructors are exempt because all we're really worried about are Anglo-American 'members' of our local communities."

"The seriousness of the problem with unqualified white English instructors, however, is that they are personally penetrating each home of our society's middle class under the pretext of English conversation study." - Kim Han-gil
