Abstract

The article presents a model of complementation of functions of authorized units of the National Police and distinguishes their actions in the general mechanism of preventive activity in preventing and combating domestic violence.

Urgent injunction against the abuser is a special measure to counter domestic violence, used by authorized units of the National Police of Ukraine as a response to the fact of domestic violence and aimed at the immediate cessation of domestic violence, eliminating the danger to life and health of victims and preventing injuries and preventing injuries. committing such violence. The conditions for its removal are the existence of a direct threat to the life or health of the victim. The current procedure for issuing an urgent restraining order by police involves the use of a special measure to counter domestic violence against the offender in the situation of committing physical domestic violence as a criminal offense, not an administrative offense.

The Code of Administrative Offenses does not provide for measures to ensure administrative offenses against offenders in order to end domestic violence. At the same time, the Code of Criminal Procedure contains a provision allowing restrictive measures to be applied to a person suspected of committing domestic violence as a criminal offense.

The lack of adequate regulatory support in the Code of Administrative Offenses concerning the issuance of an urgent restraining order as a special measure limits the preventive activity of units of the National Police of Ukraine in countering domestic violence as an administrative offense. The authors of the article propose to supplement Chapter 20 of the Code of Administrative Offenses, as well as to streamline the order of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of 01.08.2018 №654 and the interagency order of the Ministry of Social Policy of Ukraine and the Ministry of Internal Affairs of 13.03.2019 № 369/180. The proposed changes do not contravene the Law of Ukraine "On the National Police", which allows a police officer to require a person (persons) to leave a certain place for a certain period or to prohibit or restrict persons from access to a designated territory or objects, if necessary for the protection of life and health. people.
