Abstract. All modes of transport and objects of transport infrastructure are subject to disasters, accidents, incidents and other events that can happen there. Sometimes they are technogenic in nature, but more often they are the result of the so-called human factor. In addition, in the transport sphere there are also crimes of a general criminal nature. In most cases, perpetrators are identified and arrested. The current paper reveals the difference between criminal procedural detention and administrative detention and similar restrictive-compulsory actions. There have been considered in detail conditions and motives for the detention of a suspected criminal. There have been revealed the legal consequences of compiling a detention protocol and the significance of the interrogation of a suspect. The author insists on the promptness of the first interrogation of the suspect immediately after detention. It has been also proposed to abandon the practice of detaining a suspect in the investigator’s office after his preliminary interrogation as a witness.
Keywords: detention; a detention protocol; interrogation of a suspect; criminal procedure detention; proof; administrative detention; physical detention; personal search; investigator; interrogator.
