William E. (Bill) Trivelpiece is a drug intelligence officer with the Atlanta-Carolinas High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area program (HIDTA), which is designed to significantly reduce drug availability in the three-state area.
In his position, Trivelpiece plays a critical role within the Opioid Response Strategy, an initiative of the Office of National Drug Control Policy (ONDCP) which partners public health and law enforcement personnel to work together on the opioid issue. The Atlanta-Carolinas HIDTA works to achieve measurable success in improving public safety and well-being by disrupting and dismantling drug trafficking and money laundering organizations through intelligence-driven multi-jurisdictional operations; enhancing the safety and effectiveness of law enforcement operations through training; and improving communication and information-sharing among criminal justice, drug prevention and drug treatment professionals.
Trivelpiece joined HIDTA in January 2017 after nearly 30 years in local and federal law enforcement and private consulting. He retired from the Atlanta Police Department in 2010, after 23 years. He led the Atlanta-Carolinas HIDTA program as both deputy director and narcotics commander prior to his current position.
Trivelpiece, who completed his M.S, degree from Georgia State University in 2007, holds an undergraduate degree from Binghamton State University in New York and is a graduate of the Drug Unit Commander’s Academy (DUCA) in Quantico, Virginia.
