The article reveals the main methodological aspects of forming high-quality information and analytical support for decision-making in criminal justice. Making optimal management decisions in the field of criminal justice is an important component of a state's internal security. This is a complex problem that requires integrated solutions. Reforming the criminal justice system requires new models that would provide prompt information to support effective decision-making. Decision-making in criminal justice is a data-driven process. Quality data is the basis of this process. New information needs often arise when making effective decisions in criminal proceedings, requiring the use of new information technologies and data processing tools. Legislative bodies seek to improve pre-trial practices, improve sentencing laws, and align the practices of correctional institutions and supervision with evidence-based principles.

The paper examines the main problems and obstacles to accessing and using data in criminal justice. The criminal justice system is considered as a vertical hierarchical structure of decision-making. It is noted that only a stable and universally accepted system of rules, norms and laws can guarantee the security of citizens and the rights of suspects. It will also enable security professionals and politicians to obtain reliable assessments of proposed strategies in criminal justice. Such assessments will provide reliable information for reallocating resources of the criminal justice system and achieving public benefits.
