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.

Iowa’s mental health regions have until next April to figure out how to fill the gaps in mental health services available to children. But they won’t get any additional funding to do it – at least not this year.

The mandate comes after Governor Kim Reynolds signed a new law today (Wednesday) laying out the first statewide children’s behavioral health system.

Reynolds says some of the services the law calls for are early diagnosis, therapy, and a family crisis hotline.
