On 1 May 2000, Daryl Elliot Green was a Constable on a routine callout when he was ambushed and shot in his face and shoulder. Suffering critical injuries and significant blood loss, he drew his firearm and began searching for the gunman. For his actions that night, Daryl was awarded the Queensland Police Service Valour Award – their highest award for bravery. Despite two facial reconstructions over several years, Daryl showed incredible strength of character, determination and resilience. He returned to work with the Queensland Police and went on to achieve major professional and personal goals.
