CRIMINON’s goal is to help create safe communities by:

  • Reducing recidivism through the service delivery of CRIMINON rehabilitation curricula so offenders may rejoin society as contributing members.
  • Assisting the criminal justice system with the implementation of equitable and sustainable reforms that result in criminal rehabilitation and social integration.

Criminon Tennessee is a chapter of Criminon International working to achieve the CRIMINON goal in Tennessee and surrounding states of the Southeast.

CRIMINON emanated from New Zealand in 1972 and established in the United States in 1989 from where it further spread across the globe serving offenders, adults and juveniles, in different settings; in prisons, court facilities, probation centers and detention centers.
