The riot troopers were units of the Coruscant Guard that were given special training in controlling crowds with the use of nonlethal weapons. Riot trooper squads were always ready for deployment, stationed in barracks spread across the Galactic City. They also assisted the Coruscant Security Force when needed, supplying backup or helping in the hunt for dangerous fugitives.
