Mass held for NYPD officers in West Harrison

Many gathered in West Harrison to pray for police officers who give their lives to serve and protect over the weekend.

A special tribute was also given to NYPD Officer Robert Salerno, who was shot by an armed man last month and survived because he was wearing a bullet-proof vest.

Salerno and his fellow Bronx officers were blessed at St. Anthony's Church of Padua.
