Criminon (which means “no crime”) is an international non-profit public benefit corporation dedicated to addressing the causes of criminality and restoring the criminal’s self-respect through effective drug detoxification, education and common sense programs. By making them responsible for their actions, people under the Criminal Justice system can become ethical and productive citizens.
Criminon operates a network of groups in 35 countries across the globe, delivering Criminon workshops, courses and programs in jails, prisons, parole and probation offices, courthouses and re-entry facilities, as well as providing training for correctional officers and program personnel.
On this site you will see that from Indonesia in the East to Los Angeles in the West , from Great Britain to South Africa, Criminon groups are working to restore public safety and sane values, assisting local, state and national level jails and prisons as well as the offenders.
Criminon’s programs address Drug Education and Rehabilitation, Character Building, Ethical Behavior, Literacy, Education and Life and Thinking Skills including Anger Management, Communication, and Parenting Skills. Our services are not limited to those in prison,
but are effective in crime prevention and lowering
recidivism and in diversionary settings.
Criminon utilizes the research discoveries made by American author and humanitarian L. Ron Hubbard, who personally worked as a Special Officer for the Los Angeles Police Department in the late 1940’s. Mr. Hubbard discovered that every criminal career began with a loss of self-respect. When man could no longer trust himself, only then did he become a real threat to society.
As early as 1952, Mr. Hubbard began a criminal rehabilitation program with juvenile delinquents in London, England. After two decades of research developments, the Criminon program was born.
