Ipswich Police have shared an update on the recovery of Constable Peter McAulay, who was struck by a stolen vehicle in Ipswich in September 2018.
The update was shared to the myPolice Ipswich blog on Monday.
Following the 2018 incident, Constable McAulay was admitted to hospital in a critical condition and his prognosis was not good however after months in hospital and countless surgeries, he was released and his rehabilitation began.
Fourteen months on, Constable McAulay is a new man with officer in charge of Goodna Police Station, Senior Sergeant Greg Shaw, saying he could not believe his progress.
“The spirit Pete has shown through his rehabilitation, and the true grit and determination he has displayed to get back on track is amazing,” Senior Sergeant Shaw said.
“He is an inspiration to us all and we as an organisation are very proud of him.”
Constable McAulay is progressing so well that he has received clearance to return to work in early 2020 in a non-operational capacity.
