In his work, he paid great attention to the training of young scientists of the department, the continuity of scientific traditions and teaching experience of representatives of the older and younger generations of teachers.

Since April 2016, the department has been headed by Doctor of Law, Professor Vyacheslav Borisovich Shabanov. Under his leadership, the following were created: a forensic training ground with historical aspects of teaching criminalistics; the composition of the equipment of the forensic laboratory of the department was updated. As part of the implementation of the idea of professor Dulov at BSU, Shabanov continued the development of the original Belarusian scientific school of criminalistics and created a system of practice-oriented training. A branch of the Criminalistics Department was organized on the basis of the central office of the Investigative Committee.
