WELCOME to the School Resource Officer (SRO) web page for Mahtomedi High School. The SRO is a Deputy Sheriff with the Washington County Sheriff’s Office who is assigned to the school district.

About Deputy Justin McDonough
My job as a SRO is to provide a safe learning environment in district schools by reducing school violence; by improving school/law enforcement collaboration; and by improving perceptions and relations between students, staff and law enforcement.  My goal is to build a bond between students, staff and administration, by day-to-day informal contact.  I assist the school as needed, anything from safety lectures, crime prevention issues, or any other concerns that may arise during the school day.  Too often the interactions between the police and the general public are during times of problems or despair.  By allowing me to be at the school, students have the opportunity to use me as a resource and assist in an early form of prevention and build a positive bond between the police and the community. Please feel free to reach out to me anytime!
