Jim Morrow eyes futures for anti-human traffi cking initiatives, himself: MORROW’S TOMORROW By SEAN MINER sean.miner@ecm-inc.com A t the end of the month, the Eden Prairie Police Department will bid farewell, professionally at least, to Lt. Jim Morrow, who has led a decorated career of public service for nearly three decades at the department. In his own words, he leaves “a career fulfi lled.” “I’ve been fortunate,” said Mor- row. “There are people who go through law enforcement who wish they should have done this, or wish they would have done that, with dif- ferent duties ... but I’m walking away happy with everything that I’ve done and a positive attitude.” Morrow ticked off some of the du- ties he has held throughout the years. One of Eden Prairie’s fi rst SWAT team members, Morrow racked up 20-plus years on that team, in addi- tion to serving for years as a police K-9 offi cer, undercover narcotics investigations with Southwest Drug Task Force and others. Also begun under Morrow’s direction were the department’s crime tech unit, in which offi cers can perform forensic analysis in-house, as well as a regional response train- ing group for mass casualty/active shooter scenarios, the structure of which has been adopted countywide.

Shortly before 8 a.m. that morning, Eden Prai- rie Police Department re- ceived a call requesting aid for an unresponsive male laying next to a motor- cycle just off the frontage road at the college, locat- ed at 13100 College View Drive. Offi cers responded and found the victim, Ty- rone Ellis, and two other individuals. The offi cers attempted to revive Ellis, as did respond- ing personnel from Eden Prairie Fire Department and, shortly thereafter, county paramedics. Their attempts were unsuccessful, and Ellis was transported to Hennepin County Medical Center, where he was pro- nounced dead within the hour. One of the two indi- viduals at the scene when offi cers arrived said that he had come upon Ellis and, knowing that the col- lege occasionally stages mock crashes for an Emer- gency Medical Techni- cian program, contacted a security offi cer to ascer- tain whether this was the case. The security offi cer de- termined that the crash was genuine and called 911. The other individual at the scene had been driving on the See Ellis , Page 2
