The subject of the study is the institutional, theoretical and methodological aspects of the activities of law enforcement agencies to ensure national and economic security of the state. The methodological foundations of the study of national and economic security in legal science are based on the interdisciplinary nature of this category. The purpose of the study is to determine the role of law enforcement agencies of Ukraine in ensuring national and economic security on the basis of research, analysis of current legislation and practice of its application, taking into account the current conditions in Ukraine. The publication presents the views of scientists on the definition of the concept of "national security of the state" and the participation of law enforcement agencies of Ukraine in its provision. The state, development and ways of reforming the national and economic security of Ukraine are one of the most pressing issues for the state today. It is emphasized that the state legal policy in the sphere of national security is based on the provisions of the Constitution on the defense of the state, on the definition of the strategic development of Ukraine, which is the course towards European and Euro-Atlantic integration. The problems of determining the place and role of law enforcement agencies in ensuring national and economic security of Ukraine are considered on the basis of the analysis of the system of normative legal acts and the results of law enforcement agencies. The main law enforcement agencies that ensure the national security of the state are: the Prosecutor's Office, the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Ukraine, the National Police of Ukraine, the Security Service of Ukraine, the National Anti-Corruption Bureau of Ukraine, the State Bureau of Investigation, the Military Law Enforcement Service in the Armed Forces of Ukraine, the state border protection agencies and others. It is emphasized that all law enforcement agencies of Ukraine indirectly ensure the national security of the state. It is concluded that the system of ensuring national security of Ukraine, built during the years of independence, has shown its unpreparedness to neutralize real threats to national interests during the armed conflict in Ukraine. Therefore, in modern conditions, it is necessary to restructure the system of guaranteeing the national security of Ukraine, improve the legislative framework of Ukraine and the practical activities of law enforcement agencies.
