America’s prison population has grown to staggering proportions with one in every 100 adults in the United States now being confined to a prison cell. Between local jails, state prisons, federal prisons and incarcerated youth, there are over 2.3 million individuals trapped in the criminal justice system.
In all, over $80 billion is spent by the American taxpayer to perpetuate a deeply flawed system that encourages recidivism and criminality by failing to rehabilitate criminals before they are released back into society.
While America leads the planet in incarceration rates AND the total number of those incarcerated, it is not alone in its growing number of prisoners. Crime is a critical social problem facing our planet.
The Criminon program addresses drug education, character building, ethical behavior, literacy, education, study skills, life and thinking skills including anger management, communication and parenting skills. Criminon 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 1940s. 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.
