Norwich University’s newly named School of Criminology and Criminal Justice looks in wider ways at nabbing the nefarious

Perhaps “law and order” fills your head with the electric piano-guitar-clarinet theme song from the long-running “Law & Order” television show (and its myriad variants). Maybe the phrase conjures images of revolving police car lights, clicking handcuffs or banging courtroom gavels. This musical and visual imagery is frequently apt for Norwich University’s top-draw criminal justice program, which sends dozens of students into cops-and-courts careers.
