A Houston police officer who nearly died trying to serve a warrant has a renewed commitment to serving the public. Officer Rick Salter was shot in the face a year and a half ago while serving a narcotics warrant at a home in east Houston.

On Wednesday night, Salter was one of two recipients of HPD's Blue Heart Awards. They are given to officers inured in the line of duty.
