- "The Republic Guard stormed our engine factory on Mon Calamari! Caught by surprise our bodyguards instinctively tried to protect us!"
The Republic Guard was a police force for the Galactic Republic under the Judicial Department. Police officers in the Guard were referred to as Republic Peace Officers. The Guard was charged with enforcing issued traffic citations, responding to emergency calls, and apprehending criminals. They assisted the Coruscant Security Force on the planet Coruscant where they would patrol in squads of five. The Guard would also conduct raids on suspected criminal locations.
On one occasion, the outlaw Aurra Sing ambushed and killed a Duros Republic Peace officer and his squad who were on patrol. She later met the Quarren couple Tallet and Lekket who told her of a raid by the Republic Guard on their factory.
