Retired FBI agent Al Garber began working with Enger on cases in the early 1980s and continued to work together after Enger moved to the BCA. Enger didn't have any jealousy or an ego when it came to collaborating on a case.
Enger stayed with the Edina Police Department until 1997, when he joined the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension until 2001. He also worked special investigations with the Ramsey County Sheriff's Office for several years beginning in 2001. He moved to New Richmond, Wis., in 2003.

Enger was an "old time detective" from a different era of police work, said former Edina Police Chief Jeff Long, who worked with Enger as a detective.

He wasn't a guy people wanted on their bad side because he wouldn't give up and would work cases until the end, Long said.
One of Long's first cases working with Enger was a carjacking at Galleria. The suspect had thrown the woman out of her car, but had stolen the car with the woman's baby still inside. The suspect ended up ditching the baby in a small convenience market in Minneapolis.
With the state BCA, he worked on high profile murder cases around the state. In addition to assisting on the investigation of Katie Poirier, the woman who was kidnapped from a Moose Lake gas station and killed in 1999, he was the main case agent for the killing of Cally Jo Larson, a 12 year old girl who was found sexually assaulted, stabbed and hanging in her family's home in Waseca in 1999.
