"I think the rule is ill-conceived and that it seriously fetters perfectly legitimate methods of criminal enforcement".

I know meaning of the both, enforcement and criminal. However, I cant figure out what the combination "criminal enforcement" conveys?

Moreover, I do know what law enforcement means. It means to do certain efforts making sure a system of law is obeyed. But, I have no idea about the definition of "criminal enforcement"


It's a program that enforces the nation's laws by investigating cases, collecting evidence, conducting forensic analyses and providing legal guidance to assist in the prosecution of criminal conduct that threatens people's health and the environment.

In this context, criminal means "relating to laws that describe crimes rather than to laws about a person's rights".

Criminal enforcement is therefore the part of law enforcement that deals with criminal matters such as murder, theft, and embezzlement, rather than those relating to rights, for example equal opportunity legislation.
