The Coruscant Guard was a specialized branch of the Imperial stormtroopers who served as law enforcers on Coruscant and a few other Core Worlds during the height of the Galactic Empire. Under Palpatine's issue of martial law and sweeping emergency powers, the Coruscant Guard were empowered to search any facility or dwelling, arrest any citizen, and locate and detain suspected criminals and Rebel agents. These elite troops rarely saw combat, and were instead strictly for police service.The Coruscant Guards wore light yet heavily padded crimson and black armor that provided protection against physical attacks. Their sophisticated battle helm which was lined with advanced sensors, allowed them to work in complete darkness, and also contained a comlink scrambler for communication with fellow personnel. A unit commander's helmet was also equipped with a voice activated heads-up display that showed Coruscant Guard positions.Optional tracking beacon software let a unit commander know the whereabouts of his subordinates at all times. Their weapons were the Merr-Sonn taser staves, Merr-Sonn e-ss Suppressor riot rifle, stun grenades and the Blaster rifle. The Merr-Sonn taser staves were used to control crowds and suppress riots. It also had variable power settings and was capable of delivering a lethal or incapacitating charge when it strikes its target. Some Coruscant Guards also carried the more advanced Merr-Sonn R-88 Suppressor riot rifle.It was quite entirely possible that these troops were descendants of the Republic shock troopers of the Grand Army of the Republic during the Clone Wars.
During the height of the Empire, an elite unit of stormtroopers served as highly trained peacekeepers of the sprawling Imperial Center. On Coruscant, and select Core Worlds, law was enforced by the crimson-hued Coruscant Guard. Under the provisions of martial law and Palpatine's sweeping emergency powers, the Coruscant Guard were empowered to search any facility or dwelling, arrest any citizen, and otherwise locate and detain suspected subversives and Rebel agents. These troopers rarely saw combat engagements, and were instead strictly for police service.
The red and black Coruscant Guard armor was light and heavily padded, providing excellent protection against physical attacks. The sophisticated battle helm was lined with advanced sensors that allowed the trooper to operate effectively in complete darkness. The helmet also included a comlink scrambler that linked a trooper to other members of the Coruscant Guard. Optional tracking beacon software let a unit commander know the whereabouts of his troops at all times. The unit commander's helmet featured a voice-activated heads-up display that showed troop positions.In addition to blaster sidearms, the Coruscant Guard carried Merr-Sonn taser staves, a standard weapon for crowd control and riot suppression. The weapon has variable power settings; it can deliver a lethal or incapacitating charge when it strikes its target. Some Coruscant Guards also carry the Merr-Sonn R-88 Suppressor riot rifle that combined the precise targeting of a blaster rifle with the area of effect of a stun grenade.
I'm not so sure that what you're saying matches the top photo. I believe these guys were in the book Shadows of the Empire. They are more commonly known as Imperial Guards and came with a taser staff. Only reason I say this is because I have the Luke Skywalker version in my room. This isn't meant to be rude, I'm just correcting the mistakes.
