Annotation: The article examines the process of formation of investigative bodies in the territory of modern Kostroma Region from 1917 to August 1944, that is, from the first post-revolutionary years until the re-establishment of Kostroma Region. Based on the study of archival and memoir sources, the author introduces into the scientific circulation new, previously unknown information about the activities of the investigative apparatus and individual local investigators. The article provides the names of specific investigative workers who functioned in the prosecution authorities in the studied period of time. Separate criminal cases are described that were in the proceedings of the investigators who worked in Kostroma Region. When writing the article, the author used such research methods as comparative analysis, elements of a systemic, dialectic and historical approaches. The main conclusion is the thesis that the establishment of the investigative apparatus in the territory of Kostroma Region was difficult, due to a lack of qualified personnel and a large amount of work. However, this process took place in strict accordance with the laws and other regulations in force at that time.
Keywords: people's investigators, court, preliminary investigation, criminal cases, prosecutor's office, Ivanovo industrial region.
