The Wisconsin National Guard has concluded its public safety mission in the state’s largest cities. Governor Tony Evers’ office said Tuesday that nearly 1,500 Guard personnel were mobilized, beginning May 30 in Milwaukee.

The Guard completed its work there on Monday, along with Madison, Green Bay and Racine. The mission in Kenosha wrapped up last week.

All the deployments came at the request of local officials in response to urban violence and looting that was largely separate from peaceful protests over the killing of George Floyd by Minneapolis police.
