The Bengals lost, but Roethlisberger announced Monday his 11th and 12th grant awards of the 2017 season to the West Chester Police Department and the Fort Mitchell Police Department in Kentucky.

The foundation extends grants to police departments in cities and surrounding areas where the quarterback plays away from home.

“The Ben Roethlisberger Foundation grant affords the West Chester Police Department the opportunity to build upon its critically important canine unit, taking a step closer to the 3-member full complement of our unit,” Police Chief Joel Herzog said. “The community is grateful for the grant and will gladly welcome a new canine to the West Chester Police Department.”
