Deputy Scot Peterson retired from the Broward County Sheriff’s Office, rather than face discipline in the wake of the Parkland school shooting after failing to run into the building where a gunman was murdering students and staff members. Now he is due to start receiving his pension, of $8,702 per month.
This works out to over $104,000 annually, which is more than what Scot Peterson made during his last year as a Broward County Sheriff’s Deputy.
While Peterson is not charged with a crime, he could wind up forfeiting his pension, pending the results of a state inquiry into how law enforcement handled the response to the shooting.
