The Commerce Guild Punitive Security Forces were the security group that protected the members and assets of the Commerce Guild. It was merged into the Separatist Droid Army when the Commerce Guild joined the Confederacy of Independent Systems.
The Commerce Guild employed a force of security personnel and battle droids whose major function was to keep the Commerce Guild's member worlds and systems in line. The organic personnel generally worked separately from the droids, though most of the Commerce Guild's droid forces were commanded and maintained by Gossams.
During the early stages of the Clone Wars, the Punitive Security Forces maintained their original organizational system; however this was inefficient as the command structures of the various commerce guild armies proved incompatible. Under the command of General Grievous, the Separatist Army was reorganized around task forces specifically created to achieve particular objectives.
- Division (216 officers plus support personnel): A division consisted of 6 troops, led by six security chiefs and a division commander.
- Heavy dwarf spider droid unit: One advanced dwarf spider droid and one squad of B1 or B2 battle droids were considered to be one unit.
- Spelunker probe droid unit: Consisted of five spelunker probe droids. For especially hard targets, a force of 20 units was sometimes deployed.
- DSD1 dwarf spider droid unit: Consisted of four dwarf spider droids. Also organized in forces of 2-5 units.
- Advanced dwarf spider droid unit: Organized identically as DSD1 dwarf spider droid units.
- OG-9 homing spider droid unit: A single homing spider droid, with four DSD1 dwarf spider droids acting as spotters, operated as one unit.
