A South Sioux City police officer injured in a recent shoot out with a suspect is slowly recovering from his injuries.
“I feel like I’m getting better every day. It’s a slow process but it’s getting better.” And, mentally, I’m trying to get the physical part done first then I’ll work on the mental.”
That’s officer Brian VanBerkum, a 19-year veteran of the police force.
The community of South Sioux City lined the streets when VanBerkum was released from the hospital last week.
