- "Riot trooper, keep them away!"
- ―Ralsius Paldora
Riot control stormtroopers, also known as Imperial riot troopers, were specialized Imperial stormtroopers who acted as a security force tasked with the dispersion and arrest of insurgents taking part in disruptive activities. Some of them wore regular stormtrooper armor and all wielded either batons or electrostaffs. Some riot troopers were present on Takodana when Han Solo tried to extract Ralsius Paldora, and again during the Battle of Jakku when Iden Versio crashed her X-wing into the Eviscerator to find Garrick Versio.
