Baker City Police Detective Craig Davidson Moving To Hawaii

By Chris Collins


Craig Davidson's law enforcement career was ended by a 5-year-old boy.

That boy was Jordan Ryan, who was mauled to death by a pit bull on Sept. 27, 2013.

Jordan's death broke not only Davidson's heart, but the heart of the entire community.

For the 52-year-old Davidson, the loss of the kindergartner was more sadness than he ever again wants to bear in a day's work. For that reason, he has resigned from his job as a Baker City Police detective.

He had planned to work three more years before retiring, but he turned in his badge on April 24 to ensure that he wouldn't have to endure another child's death before leaving the police force.
