Meet Craig Semple: The Cop Who Fell to Earth

Wed 28 February at 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm


When a young eighteen-year-old Craig Semple joined the New South Wales Police Force in 1988, he generally preferred to steer clear of trouble rather than turn and face it. But like so many young police officers, through a process of intentionally and selflessly turning towards danger, he gradually built resilience to fear. By the time he started locking horns with some of the most feared members of Australia’s outlaw motorcycle gangs, Craig thought himself completely bulletproof and fearless.

The Cop Who Fell to Earth is Craig’s story of transformation and profound personal growth through exposure to extreme life events. Ultimately, it is a story of how human endurance, tenacity, sacrifice and belief in something beyond the self ultimately lead to the triumph of good over evil.
