On 1 May 2000, Constable Daryl Elliott Green was on a routine callout when he was ambushed and TWICE SHOT in the face and shoulder. Despite critical injuries and significant blood loss, he drew his firearm and began searching for the gunman.
A year later, for his actions that night, he was awarded the Queensland Police Service Valour Award–their highest accolade for bravery. But he was only just embarking on his harrowing journey of recovery.
