Because of hockey and the comics, "Enforcer" carries a certain connotation in American English. So, Viri, if you're still interested in an answer, you need to be more specific about what you intend to say. Don't assume the connotation carries over to other countries.

I don't think you can easily use the word enforcer in Spanish as we use it in English. Perhaps Lazarus will come back and prove me wrong. To enforce ie, to compel can be translated as "imponer" which basically means "to impose"

Then the example you gave had no relevance to what you really want. As Lazarus pointed out, there are so many meanings, that the word will probably change with each sentence.

You say it in many different ways, according to the meaning of the word "enforece", which, according to Oxford, has 14 different meanings, and easily over 7 different translations into Spanish. Why don't you give us a context, a sentence, or more details?
