Torii Station hosted the U.S. Army Military Police School's Domestic Violence Intervention mobile training team. Law enforcement personnel from all sister services on Okinawa attended the five day class. Additionally, six Law Enforcement Japanese Security Guards from U.S. Army Garrison Okinawa Provost Marshal's Office attended the training. U.S. Army Garrison Okinawa's Japanese security guards patrol daily alongside Military Police which includes responding to incidents of domestic violence both on post and in surrounding off-base communities.

Domestic Violence Intervention Training covers many important topics such as biases and beliefs about domestic violence, dynamics and psychological aspect of domestic violence, affects of interpersonal violence on children, understanding the neurobiology of trauma and domestic violence first responder protocol. There is also a role-playing portion of the training, where students put their new knowledge into practice by playing out an unknown scenario where they respond to a domestic violence call.
