Then-Broward County Sheriff's Deputy Scot Peterson, who was assigned to Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School during the February 14 shooting, is seen in this still image captured from the school surveillance video released by Broward County Sheriff's Office in Florida. After the shooting, Peterson was suspended without pay by Broward Sheriff Scott Israel and then resigned.
Peterson was the subject of considerable criticism in the wake of the shooting after reports emerged that the sheriff's deputy chose to remain outside the school rather than enter when the gunman began opening fire.
Andrew Pollack, the father of victim Meadow Pollack, called Peterson "the coward of Broward" on Twitter, and a legislator, Rep. Jared Moskowitz, D-Coral Springs, called on Scott to take away Peterson's pension.
This runs contrary to police dispatch audio, in which Mr Peterson reported shots as coming from "inside the 1200 building".
These payments are based on the total number of years Peterson worked, and the average of his five highest-paid fiscal years, but according to a Department of Management Services spokeswoman, health benefits are not included in the monthly amount.
Public records show that Peterson earned $75,673.72 in base salary plus overtime and other compensation a year ago, for a total of $101,879.03. Taxpayers are now on the hook to send $8,702.35 to Peterson every month for the rest of his life.
He went on to say the money should go to help fund school safety or scholarships for wounded students.
Fred Guttenberg, who lost his daughter, Jaime, tweeted that Peterson's pension "infuriates" him in "ways people can not comprehend". Pollack told the Sun-Sentinel. "He's a disgrace and a coward".
Pollack later tweeted, "The coward of broward, Scot Peterson is getting over $8k a month pension!" He hid while my daughter and 16 others were slaughtered! He aims to prevent potential shooters like Cruz from falling "through the cracks" of the education system, the Associated Press reported.
