In 1880 he re-located to Breckenridge, Co. and resumed his prospecting, and served as Summit County undersheriff for two years. After a brief stay in Denver, Warren and wife Mollie relocated to Lyons and served as town alderman until he was elected Sheriff in 1893 on the "People's Party" ticket.

Subsequent to his service as sheriff Mr. Dyer served as magistrate of Boulder's "Police Court" and became a local real estate developer.
