N. Ye. Filipenko, O. V. Sharapova

Author analyzes conceptual principles, views and ideas on understanding the essence of expert prevention, examines the relation between the concepts of Crime Hindering and Crime Averting, since one of the main problems that cannot be overcome in forensic research of the phenomenon of expert prevention is the ambiguity of both scientific understanding and elaboration, as well as practical application of the corresponding conceptual and categorical apparatus. It is emphasized that essence of forensic prevention lies in the influence of relevant subjects on crime through the use of specialized professional knowledge. Thus, the subject of forensic examination of every kind and type should be attributed to the research on circumstances on the basis of which scientific, organizational and technical measures of preventive nature can and should be developed. The author also analyzes the principles of expert prevention, which we refer to: legality; ensuring the rights, human and citizen freedoms; analysis and generalization of forensic practice. In our opinion, legitimacy in preventive activity of forensic institutions is a complex socio-legal phenomenon, the main criterion of which is the category of legitimacy consisting of a set of subjective rights, reflected and enshrined in the current legislation, formed as a result of objective public development.
