Officer Salter Talks About The Night He was Shot

In an earlier post, I introduced you to Houston Police Officer Rick Salter.  He was honored with the Star of  Texas award for his sacrifice in the line of  duty. Now you can listen to him talk about the night he was shot during a drug raid.

During the ceremony Governor Rick Perry  thanked Salter for his, “life of integrity and bravery.” 

In March, Officer Salter was shot in the face while serving an undercover narcotics warrant on a suspect’s home. The suspect was killed and officer Salter spent 30 days  in a coma.  He is now partially paralyzed. 

The award ceremony was held at the Houston Police Officers Union headquarters, and was attended by officer Salter’s wife and children, HPOU  President Gary Blankinship,  Chief Harold Hurtt, City Council member Mike Sullivan and several officers who worked in the narcotics unit alongside officer Salter.
