announced: 06. 03. 2020


The study of man by the methods of such sciences as psychology, sociology, forensic science and criminology makes it possible to substantiate the individuality of a person and the dependence of his actions and actions on the formed interests, value orientations, ideals, life goals representing personality traits. These signs determine the behavior of the victim, provoke the perpetrators to commit a crime, affect the methods of committing a crime. Based on a study of 320 criminal cases of violations of personal freedom, the victims are classified into two groups: a) victims who were intended for physical exploitation in order to obtain material benefits; b) victims whom the criminals did not plan to exploit, but intended to get a ransom for them, to appropriate their vehicles and property vehicles. Each of these groups is characterized by specific personality traits, the knowledge of which allows you to establish the circumstances of the crime, which are guidelines for organizing an investigation, extension and version control, searching for traces and means of crime, and ultimately identifying the offender.
