Summary/Abstract: It is said that each man is his own judge, thus deciding for himself whether he wants to live in freedom or under the sanction of the law. Human acts that are against the norms of social cohabitation led to the development of technical-scientific research called criminal investigations. In this article, I will present the management of a criminal investigation, starting from the phase of the preceding acts to the sentencing phase. The article will be structured in two stages, namely the notions and principles of the criminal investigation organization and the versions of criminal prosecution. In the first stage of the article, the principles of the organization of criminal prosecution that refer to the criminal process's fundamental rules and implicitly the investigation's planning in relation to the specific principles of criminal science will be brought into question. These principles fall into two main categories: individuality and dynamism, aspects that I will develop within the article. In the first stage, I will capitalize on the structure and content of the criminal investigation plan. I will consider the tactical report, the timing of drawing up an investigation plan, the formula of the seven questions, and the formula of the four questions. In the other half of the full table of contents of the article, I will develop the second stage, respectively, the prosecution versions. These versions refer to the classification criteria structured on the main, general, and secondary versions. The tactic of developing the prosecution versions spread over three phases: possession of data, the elaboration of the versions, and their reasoning. Towards the end of the article, I will expose the ways of checking the versions of the criminal investigation. At the end of the article, I will conclude with the technical-scientific tactics of a criminal investigation in relation to the doctrine of criminal law and the specialists concerned.
