Analysis of European and national experience performance of police enforcement activities

Keywords: legality of the police, technical means, pan-European standards for police functions


The article reflects the experience of European countries, where much has been done to transform the police into an effective state institution, which enjoys the trust and respect of citizens. The basic organizational and legal foundations of the police - one of the oldest and inalienable components of world civilization, the conceptual justification of the reliable protection of individuals, society and the state from criminal attacks, the rule of law, public safety are considered.

Formulating the purpose of the article. The use of technical means of fixing offenses is one of the essential elements of a highly developed society. At the same time, Ukraine is actively pursuing its foreign policy towards accession to the European Union. That is why the integration intentions of our state necessitate the systematic improvement of the use of technical means of fixing offenses. Resolving objections and conflicts requires the proper regulation of the procedure for bringing the offender to justice, which, in turn, requires comprehensive scientific studies of these problems.

Technological advances have led to new challenges for human rights, as legal regulation tends to regulate existing legal relationships and does not account for the emergence of new forms. A striking example of this is the geometric progression of the use of technical means of fixing offenses by the police in compliance with public order.

According to the analysis of the law enforcement practice of the use of technical means, quite often leads to strong objections between citizens and representatives of authorized state bodies, which need their resolution and resolution. This is especially the case for the use of technical means of fixing offenses for the purpose of counteracting offenses, and also when using these technical means as evidence.

Police activity is one of the foundations for the promotion and development of pan-European values. However, in order for it to be effective, it is essential that the police respect human rights, the rule of law and the principles of democracy - otherwise these pan-European values will be threatened.
