Welcome Deputy Sheriff Phil LeMere

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!
