John Jenkins is a detective with the LAPD Hollywood division and parnter of Reneé Ballard. He is a 25 year veteran who likes the "late show" at this point in his life because his wife is undergoing cancer treatment and he likes to be at home in the daytime when she might need him. He has some friction with Ballard because of his reduced dedication to the mission and because of her tendency to ignore the department's rules and standards. On the other hand, she is his partner and he makes every effort to honor the partnership.
