Conservation Enforcement prepares interested students in a career in natural resource law enforcement. The program also provides knowledge and applied skills in natural resource law enforcement for successful careers in federal, provincial or municipal agencies, as well as the private sector.
In general, law enforcement is an integral aspect of the Canadian criminal justice system. The latter, as a structure, includes all those elements that attempts to manage, punish, and prevent crime such as private and public law enforcement and security agencies, corrections, the judicial system, and related domains like Customs and Excise, Immigration, and Social Services. Natural Resources Law Enforcement revolves around 'regulating the use of natural resources, and accountability for activities that have an adverse effect on the environment.' Regulated activities include such things as aggregate extraction, alteration of fish and other wildlife habitat, discharge of pollutants, fishing, hunting, logging, and use of public land.
