FUND A HERO
PLEASE SUPPORT SDPD SGT. ANTHONY ELLIOTT
Sgt. Elliott was shot in the head in the line of duty on December 7th. He remains in critical care with bullet still lodged in his brain and cannot move his left arm or leg. He and his young family face a long recovery.
A note from Laura (his loving and devoted wife):
"It’s an understatement to say that Anthony is an extremely well-liked and respected Sergeant. He has given his heart and soul to the department for the past 6 years. He gets up every day hellbent on being better than he was the day before. He has worked tirelessly, both on the clock and off the clock to be the best version of himself he could possibly be for the department.
More important than his dedication to his career development is how he puts people first and is liked by all. This is a true testament to the man that he is. While he is driven to be the best he can at work, he first and foremost prioritizes being the best husband and father humanly possible.
I wish I could share all the videos of him with our two boys on any given day so everyone could see the love and how much of himself he gives to his family.
He is the most honorable and selfless man that I know. There’s nothing more important to him than his family, and I know that because he makes us feel that way every single day. The first thing he said to me after he was shot was, “I just want to be able to hold my kids again.”
What I want people to understand is every single day that he goes to work there is a chance he doesn’t come back. That’s the true reality. It has become extremely unsafe for police officers today. The biggest sacrifice someone could give is to place themselves in immediate danger daily to help serve and protect those who can’t protect themselves. People you don’t even know.
There are not many people who sign up for that and continue to show up against all odds. Most people run away from danger, and he has chosen to run towards it. He is a true hero, and I am beyond proud of him."
