The article considers the issue of non-govemmental organizations as a re­source in combating crime. A number of problems that complicate the process of combating crime in Ukraine have been singled out. Among them: public distrust in the law enforcement system, and the lack of clear legislation to regulate the issue of cooperation and partnership between the state and civil society in the field. The au­thor believes that such problems can be solved through participation of civil society institutions (namely non-governmental organizations). It is proposed to adopt a sin­gle legal act that would determine the policy of the Ukrainian state in the field of combating crime and provide for the involvement of civil society through the work of non-governmental organizations in such activities. As a result, the author pointed out that non-governmental organizations have great potential as a resource in com-bating crime, however, which still needs to be implemented.
