The authors used the following methods of scientific knowledge when writing the article: formal logical; comparative analysis; systemic structural; formal legal; logical and normative.

A comprehensive study of the competence and powers of KORD has been conducted in the article. It has been determined that the authority of this unit of the National Police of Ukraine are represented by a set of rights and obligations, and the competence includes its powers. The competence of this unit includes both rights and obligations fixed at the legislative level, and professional knowledge that a policeman must have at a high level and correctly apply it in his official activities. It has been argued that the KORD is provided with competence in order to consolidate the scope of the rights and powers of a police officer, which allows regulating the prohibition of going beyond its borders at the legislative level. The analysis of the existing regulatory framework and existing studies related to the competence of law enforcement agencies has been conducted. Three groups of rights of the KORD have been distinguished: 1) rights that directly contribute to the performance of official duties; 2) rights that have an indirect effect on the performance of the special unit employees’ duties; 3) the right to exercise constitutional rights and freedoms.
