Two hero cops who survived separate wild gun battles last year were promoted today to the rank of detective.

Officers Robert Salerno, 26 and Ricardo Ramirez, 29, became newly-minted detectives after escaping a close brush with death.

“I tell you both of these young men had tremendous drive and desire to come back,” Police Commissioner Ray Kelly said after the promotions ceremony at Police Headquarters.

“They’ve made remarkable recoveries.“

Salerno was shot three times at close range while responding to a call of an armed man who attacked his elderly mother’s home-health aide in the Bronx on March 22.
