Keywords: pre-trial investigation, operational and search activity, covert investigation (search) action, operational unit.

Abstract

The purpose of the article is to determine the features and legal grounds for the use of tools of operational and search activities in the pre-trial investigation. Subject of research: The subject of research is covert investigative (search) actions and operational and search measures. Methodology: dialectical method, formal logic methods, logical and semantic method, system analysis method, theoretical method, normative and dogmatic method, legal modeling method. The results of the study: Distinguishing between investigation and search measures, we apply the following principle: if the object of operational activities is already known to law enforcement officers we are talking about search measures, if not – about investigation measures. Practical consequences: The possibility of legal regulation of the use of tools of operational and search activity at the stages of criminal proceedings is determined. Value / originality: It is concluded that the list of operational and search measures also includes those that have no analogues with the CISAs and therefore operational and search measures do not duplicate the CISAs, but perform the task of ensuring the possibility of fulfilling the investigator’s instructions to conduct the CISAs.
