Daryl Elliott Green was TWICE SHOT in the line of duty, he has an incredible story of bravery, courage and resilience.

In the early hours of 1 May 2000, Constable Daryl Elliott Green was on a routine job in a suburban neighbourhood when he was ambushed and TWICE SHOT in the face and shoulder. In the heat of the moment, despite critical injuries, Daryl instinctively drew his firearm and started searching for the gunman while protecting injured colleagues and residents.

For his actions that night, Daryl received the highest police award for bravery and a citation from Australia’s Governor General. Yet Daryl’s real story – one so harrowing it will keep your audience on the edge of their seats – was only just beginning.

Even though some of his darkest days lay ahead, Daryl was actually on a remarkable journey of healing and introspection which would ultimately teach him some of life’s greatest lessons. Daryl Elliott Green returned to the police and over the next 20 years was promoted three times and he also challenged himself to overcome his greatest fear – guns!
