The deployment officially comes more than four months after troops were called to the district following the deadly January 6th attack on the Capitol.
More than 2,100 National Guard troops will return to their home bases during the week.
Officials say once the mission concludes, the D.C. National Guard will return to normal operations and the out-of-state guard members will return to their home stations.
