The article deals with the features of implementation of informational and analytical support for the activities of law enforcement agencies in the prevention, discovery and investigation of corruption offenders. According to the author, such provision includes two relatively independent components: informational and analytical. The information provides for the collection, processing, accumulation and systematization of information about corruption offences and the persons who committed them. Analytical one is the determination of the state, structure and dynamics of corruption crime, negative deviations in its structure, the establishment of cause-and-effect relationships between various factors that determine it, as well as forecasting trends in its changes.
The most effective means of informational and analytical activity for the prevention, detection and investigation of corruption offenders is the method of analytical intelligence and analytical search, focused on constant and continuous search, accumulation and processing of information about corrupt activities in a certain territory, in the economy or in the state as a whole.
The division of analytical intelligence into types based on the range of tasks to be solved has theoretical and practical significance.
Analytical intelligence for the purpose of solving operational problems allows one to establish the trends of corruption crime, find out the places and areas of concentration of corruption crimes, and determine the profile of the corruptor.
Analytical intelligence with the aim of solving tactical problems pursues the goal of developing tactical measures to apprehend criminals, identify risks and warn specific corruption offenders.
Strategic analytical intelligence involves the preparation of strategic management decisions and the identification of corruption-related risks. Considering the high latency of corruption offenders and the lack of necessary access to closed, confidential information by individual law enforcement agencies, the use of OSINT to search for hidden assets and connections of subjects of corruption offenders on the basis of open sources of information and data is an effective method of analytical intelligence in order to solve the problems of combating corruption offences. including on the Internet.
Among the other directions of the analytical search, it is necessary to note the report on the state of anti-corruption, information from the unified state register of persons who have committed corruption or corruption-related offences, and the results of published relevant journalistic and public investigations.
