TPD sergeant retires after more than 32 years with force

TYLER, TX (KLTV) -

The Tyler Police Department said goodbye to one of their own Friday, as Sergeant Terry Morrow retired after over 32 years with the department.

Morrow's wife, Emily, their children and grandchildren, and a room full of friends and coworkers gathered this afternoon to honor Morrow, who has been a sergeant for 24 and a half of those years.

State Representative Leo Berman sent Morrow a flag that has flown over the Texas Capitol. Morrow was also presented with a department watch and badge by Police Chief Gary Swindle.

"I'll tell you that 32 years went by really fast, really fast. Now, June 1st, 1980, I wasn't thinking about retirement. I was thinking about just a job with a paycheck," Morrow said. "And what a great place to work, for the city of Tyler and the Tyler Police Department."

Morrow has been the Commander of the Crisis Negotiation Team, has supervised the Property Crimes Investigation Unit and also served on the Integrity Unit and the Patrol Division, among other duties.
