Dear Dover School Community;
It is with great pleasure and enthusiasm I introduce myself as the District’s new School Resource Officer. I am truly honored to return to my alma mater in this capacity.
I must thank the Dover School District for continuing to partake in the School Resource Officer Program. I must also thank Dutchess County Sheriff Imperati and the command staff for selecting me to attend the necessary training and further assigning me to the Dover School District. I must also thank my predecessor; Deputy “Sal”, for his continued guidance and advice. Above all, I must thank you; the Dover School community. Whether be it an administrator, a faculty member, a staff member, a student, a parent, etc. you have welcomed me with open arms. Your welcoming ways have quickly made me feel part of this wonderful community.
I come to you with nearly 21 years of Law Enforcement experience; all of which were dedicated to the Patrol Division. Additionally, I have specialized training in crime scene preservation and documentation as well as crash investigation.
I look forward to working with each of you and assisting you in any way I possibly can!
Deputy Sheriff Phil LeMere
Dutchess County Sheriff’s Office
