Employee Spotlight 

Michael Prince

Harris County Juvenile Probation Department

Michael Prince has been an integral member of the HCJPD team for 32 years. He began his career in 1989, working as a part-time detention officer and then later became a Field Services Juvenile Probation Officer.  In 2000, he found his passion when he joined Human Resources. To this day Michael has remained working in HR, helping employees reach their career aspirations.

Michael enjoys recruiting at colleges and universities and cherishes the relationships he has built in the community over the years. He is never more satisfied with his work than when he witnesses people he has recruited or coached happy with their accomplishments and work at the agency.

Away from the job, Michael can be found participating in his favorite hobby fishing, or providing encouragement to other men who are fathers. He has faithfully served his church in the youth and music ministries for over 30 years.

Service is a trait running throughout Michael’s family. His wife has been an educator for over 31 years, and his only sibling, his brother, is a retired Internal Revenue Service Agent.  The family also shares in caregiving for Michael’s 86 year- old mother. 

Both of Michael’s children are musicians who attended the High School for the Performing and Visual Arts.  His son is a violinist studying music at the University of Oklahoma and his daughter is a graduate of Rice University in Social Policy Analysis and Sociology and is currently in her first year of law school at Yale University.

Michael is a great model of dedication to family, faith and public service. HCJPD is grateful he is on our team.
