Based on the general evaluations regarding the appearance and dynamics of criminality, the volume of this negative social phenomenon is constantly increasing, also due to the fact of the appearance of different forms of criminality. The Tetovo Department of Internal Affairs, within the scope of its powers, during 2021, continuously acted on the basis of the decisions and protocols approved by the Government of the Republic of North Macedonia, which are related to the prevention of the spread of the disease infectious Covid 19. Consequently, due to non-compliance with such protocols, DIA-Tetovo has filed criminal charges for committing the criminal offense of “Failure to act according to health regulations during an epidemic” and “Transmission of contagious disease”. On the basis of the Decree on the mandatory keeping of personal protective equipment by citizens when leaving their homes, convictions for misdemeanours were also registered in the DIA Tetovo region this year.

During the Covid-19 pandemic, as well as after the pandemic period, as perpetrators of various criminal offenses, both natural persons and legal entities are presented to different authorities.

After the time of the Covid-19 pandemic, especially during the period of 2021 and 2022, according to statistical data from SPB-Tetovo, we notice that criminal offenses have been committed such as; abuse of official duty, unconscious working during duty, criminal offenses in the field of economic crime, organized crime and corruption, etc.

Key words: criminality, pandemic, progress, prevention.
