Peterson resigned and retired a week after the shooting when an initial investigation revealed he didn't go into Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School to confront the shooter, who is charged with killing 17 students and teachers, according to the Sun Sentinel.
Pollack said Peterson should not be entitled to his pension and instead suggested the pension monies be allotted for school safety.
Peterson gained national infamy in February after it was revealed he hid outside a school building while one of the largest school shootings in US history was ongoing.
Pollack, who has filed a wrongful death suit in Broward Circuit Court against Peterson for not entering the building during the massacre, also took to Twitter to condemn him.
Peterson was branded a "coward" by President Donald Trump and Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel said that he should have gone into the school building to "kill the killer".
On Feb. 14, surveillance video showed Peterson waiting outside the school as Cruz prowled the halls.
Peterson remains under investigation by the Florida Department of Law Enforcement which is expected to release a final report this month outlining what went wrong with the law enforcement response to the shooting. Two guidance counselors concurred with Peterson, but two mental health professionals nixed the prospect, saying the teen didn't meet the criteria for involuntary committal.
"The coward of [B] roward, Scot Peterson is getting over $8k a month pension!"
Andrew Pollack, who lost his 18-year-old daughter, Meadow, in the shooting, told the Sentinel that Peterson is a "disgrace". "How in the hell is he getting this?" he tweeted. Fred Guttenberg's daughter Jaime was killed in the attack.
"My daughter would still be alive if this person did his job", he tweeted.
Florida law allows for the forfeiture of pension benefits based on a conviction for certain offenses, Erin Rock, secretary for the Department of Management Services, wrote in a letter to Broward State Attorney Michael Satz and Sheriff Israel.
The former deputy received his first monthly check of $8,702.35 in April, she said.
