Keywords: criminal proceedings, innovative technologies, database, electronic document management, lighting, 3D scanners.

Abstract

The purpose of the article is to study investigative and judicial practice, as well as international experience to determine the prospects for the introduction of innovative technologies in criminal justice in Ukraine in modern conditions, to reveal their capabilities in the context of improving investigative (investigative) actions and trials.

In order to achieve the goal of the article, a comparative legal method was used, which allowed to determine the internationally tested innovative methods of improving criminal justice. Methods of analysis and generalization have helped to identify current problems that arise in investigative and judicial practice, which can be solved through the introduction of modern forensic tools.

In the article, the authors argued that an alternative way to increase the efficiency of criminal justice in Ukraine is the introduction of innovative technologies that have been tested in some countries. Forensic innovations, the need for which is urgent now and the implementation of which is justified by the needs of investigative and judicial bodies of Ukraine, we include those aimed at automation, digitalization of pre-trial investigation and trial. Prospects for the introduction of an electronic system of expert opinions, artificial intelligence technologies, laser three-dimensional scanning are identified. The need to improve the electronic justice system was emphasized.
