Employee Spotlight 

Jennifer Love

Harris County Juvenile Probation Department

Jennifer Love has 16 years of experience working for HCJPD. She began her career with HCJPD in 2006 after obtaining her master's Degree at Grambling State University. Jennifer has served as a Juvenile Probation Officer for the Intake/Court Services Division and currently works in the Creating Advocacy & Empowerment (CARE) Court, Specialty Court Program. CARE Court addresses the unique needs of young people who have been involved in or who are at significant risk for involvement in sex trafficking/commercial sexual exploitation.


Jennifer's most gratifying moments of her work are when clients successfully complete their probation term and are rewarded with a graduation celebration through the CARE Court program. Jennifer often receives calls and office visits from former clients to update her on their positive progress, and she continues to provide them with support by referring them to services in the community if necessary and by attending their high school graduations.


What Jennifer enjoys the most about her role within HCJPD is building healthy and positive relationships with the youth and providing them with guidance to help them navigate into adulthood. She truly has a passion for the work she does and is often described by her clients as a second mother.


On her off time, Jennifer enjoys traveling, reading, and spending time with family and friends. During the pandemic, she volunteered at food banks and served the homeless community.


Thank you Jennifer, for all that you do for youth and families, and for being part of our HCJPD team!
