Camden-Rockport Police Chief bids goodbye to Curt Andrick, hires Aaron Bailey to fill the detective position

Tue, 11/22/2022 - 10:15pm
    The Camden Police Department would like to express our sincere congratulations to Detective Sergeant Curt Andrick on his new role as Chief Deputy of the Knox County Sheriff’s Office.
    Det. Sgt. Andrick will be leaving after 26 years of dedicated service to the Town of Camden, Camden Police Department, and the citizens of Camden.
    Curt has filled many roles at Camden PD over the years. He started as our parking enforcement officer and later transferring to the Patrol Division. Curt worked patrol for a number of years developing an interest in criminal investigations, and he was instrumental in developing the first-ever detective position within the department.
    Curt’s hard work in criminal investigations of all types earned him a promotion to Detective Sergeant, a rank he hold to this day.
    I have had the pleasure of working my entire career with Curt. I can’t thank him enough for his hard work and dedication to the department. He will surely be missed by all of us. On behalf of the member of the Camden Police Department, we wish you good luck in your new role as Chief Deputy. We look forward to working with you in the future.
    Thank you for your service!
    At this time I would also like to announce that Aaron Bailey, of Rockport, has been hired by the department to fill the vacant Detective Sergeant position.
    Aaron graduated from Camden-Rockport High school in 1990. Throughout college, he worked part time for both Camden and Rockport police departments.  After graduating college in 1995 with a B.S. degree in criminal justice, he became a police officer for the Town of Brunswick.
    Throughout his 22-plus years with Brunswick, he served as a patrol officer, detective, school resource officer, hostage negotiator, Maine Criminal Justice Academy instructor as well as several other department roles.
    Aaron retired from the police department in 2018 where he became the assistant director of Security for Bowdoin College.  While at the college he was in charge of College Emergency Management and was the supervisor for the security staff at the Art Museum.  
    Aaron moved back to the area last November with his wife and youngest son, who is currently attending Camden-Rockport Middle School.  He also has a grown daughter and son. 
    Aaron has been working as the Executive Director and Lake Warden for the Megunticook Watershed Association.  Admittedly, he has missed the daily work with the public and the schools. Det. Sgt. Bailey will begin his new duties December 1.
