The article is devoted to the problem of the use of domestic arrest as a preventive measure and the enforcement of procedural coercion in criminal proceedings. On the basis of the research of the scientific positions of individual processologists on the use of domestic arrest, it was concluded that home arrest is a progressive preventive measure, which in its essence is a complex of restrictions and prohibitions imposed on an accused (suspect), appointed in accordance with the decision of the investigating judge or court, connected with its full or partial isolation within the limits of the housing, aimed at achieving the goal of this preventive measure, implemented and controlled by the authorized bodies. However, the mechanism of house arrest is not perfect. Therefore, he needs to improve and create conditions for the use of domestic arrest to perform his procedural function at an appropriate level.
