Pittsburgh Steelers’ Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger will be awarding the 2017 season grant from the Ben Roethlisberger Foundation at The Giving Back Fund, to the Lombard Police Department, to replace their existing K-9, currently approaching retirement.

The $11,500 grant will fully fund the new police K-9, including initial training and future specific training needs. K-9 Officer Chico’s retirement date has not yet been determined and he will continue to serve the Village of Lombard until that time.

“As our current Police K-9 Officer Chico retires, this grant will allow the Village of Lombard to continue our commitment to our K-9 program, which has been in place for more than 25 years,” said Lombard Police Chief Roy Newton. “Our new K-9 officer will benefit the Lombard community for years to come. We certainly appreciate the Ben Roethlisberger Foundation’s ongoing dedication to local law enforcement throughout the country.”

For more information please contact Communications Coordinator Avis Meade at meadea@villageoflombard.org or (630)620-5718.
