Criminalistic problems of ensuring investigative actions involving the protected person

Keywords: criminalistics, investigator, security, protected person, investigative actions, practical recommendations

The tactical features of the production of investigative actions in which the protected person takes part as the subject of the process in respect of which security measures are applied are considered. The relevance of the consideration of criminalistic problems of ensuring investigative actions with the participation of the protected person is caused by the lack of necessary scientifically-based developments of practical recommendations on the organization and tactics of the production of such investigative actions. The purpose of the study is to improve the organizational, tactical, criminalistic and psychological aspects of criminalistic provision of investigative actions with the participation of the protected person in order to optimize and improve the effectiveness of law enforcement practice in cases of crimes related to unlawful encroachment on the participants of the process. Materials and methods: the study was conducted using the general dialectical method of scientific cognition, as well as system-structural, cognitive methods and techniques. The results of the study and conclusions: the features of the forensic support of investigative actions with the participation of the protected person are revealed, which are explained by the organizational, tactical and procedural conditions of their conduct, as well as the criminalistic mechanism for solving tactical tasks for the application of security measures. The interrelation of the investigative actions under consideration in procedural and tactical aspects is established, based on the fact that they play an important role both in collecting and examining evidence in a criminal case and in ensuring a sufficient level of protection of participants in the process. Practical recommendations on the criminalistic support of investigative actions with the participation of the protected person are proposed, in particular, the need for careful preparation of the investigative actions under consideration with the coordinated interaction of the investigator with the state protection units is justified.
