The number of years married isn't correct - he married Ollie in 1899 so had been married 11 years. Had been separated for 8 years - maybe census taker misunderstood and it should have read Divorced 8 years?

May 1926 News Article Jack Dyer1926Tucson Citizen May 2, 1926 - CHIEF J. DYER COMPLIMENTED BY SAWTELLE Boost Given Tucson Marshal in Open Court Saturday Judge William H. Sawtelle of the Unites States district court highly complimented Chief of Police Jack Dyer in open court for his vigorous campaign against bootleggers and other law violators, following the hearing of several cases yesterday."I want to give thanks of this court to Chief of Police Jack Dyer," Judge Sawtelle declared, "for the vigorous campaign in abateing violations of the national prohibition law in Tucson, which has relieved federal officers of many minor cases, and allowed them to concentrate on the higher-ups and wholesale bootleggers, and has greatly facilitated the work of this court. If other municipal officers in the state of Arizona would do the same, it would greatly aid federal officers and promote better observance of the prohibition law."
Funeral John Edwin Dyer #11927Arizona Daily Star, Aug. 27, 1927 - DYER FUNERAL SERVICE TO BE THIS AFTERNOON Public Rites for Son of Chief of Police to be at Grave Only Private funeral services will be held at the Reilly chapel this afternoon at 3 o'clock for Jack Edwin Dyer, Jr., son of Chief of Police J.E. Dyer. Afterwards, the principal service, which friends of the family have been asked to attend, will be held at the grave in Evergreen Cemetery.
The boy, who was 7 years old, died after a short illness, a victim of spinal meningitis. He was ill early last Saturday and was then taken to St. Mary's hospital, where in spite of every medical aid, he died at 8:00 Monday evening.
Because of the nature of the disease which caused the death of the child, the private funeral services in the chapel were announced yesterday. The service at the graveside, however, will be for the benefit of the friends who have been asked to attend.
 Funeral John Edwin Dyer #21927Arizona Daily Star Aug. 29, 1927 - VETERAN'S WEEP AT FUNERAL OF JACK DYER, JR. Police are Active and Honorary Pall Bearers For Son of Chief John Edwin Dyer, Jr. 7-year-old son of Chief of Police and Mrs. J. E. Dyer, was laid to rest yesterday afternoon in the Elks plot in Evergreen Cemetery, while hardened and old members of the police force, friends and relatives wept quietly as the Rev. Julian C. Mc Pheeters, pastor of the University Methodist church, read the benediction and said a closing prayer. Rev. McPheeters in his talk consoled those whom "Little Jack" had left with the thought that "God plucks the little children from earth for heaven, just as we on earth go into the garden and pluck the bud of the rose."Services at Reilly chapel were private and brief. Mrs. John ??? sang "God will Wipe All Tears Away", and Mr. McPheeters gave a prayer. The funeral cortege was made up of 20 cars while at the grave where the public services were held as many more were waiting. All cilty offices were unofficially closed during the time of the funeral, while the police force, with the exception of those required to remain on duty, was represented 100 percent.

1928 News article Jack Dyer1928Tucson Oct. 7, 1928 - DYER PRAISES FORCE MORALE Men of Tucson's Finest Are Married; Chief Tells of Confidence "When you appoint a policeman, appoint one you can trust. Then trust him." Jack Dyer, city marshal and chief of police, is proud of his department. with 26 members, all married men, and 19 of them tax payers, the chief has built up the organization in four years to the point where he admits he's proud of it. And he believes the success of his administration has been due to this principle of confidence. A policeman, he says, must do his work in the absence of his chief. He must be able to meet all sorts of emergencies, and meet them on his own initiative. So if he can't be trusted, he should not be a policeman. If he can be trusted, then the thing to do is to trust him. Dyer spends none of his time driving around the streets to find out whether his men are doing their duty. He has no sympathy with espionage. He has had, on one or two occasions, to dismiss men for offences against the department rules, and when he does that is final. He does not ask of the men to do anything he would not do himself. He has walked every beat in the city as a patrolman, has acted as desk sargeant and was night captain before he became chief. His first beat was in the warehouse district. The chief was appointed patrolman by Chief Dallas Ford eight years ago. He received his appointment at 10 o'clock at night, and ten minutes later was walking his beat. THIS IS AN EXCERPT - ARTICLE IS LONGER. For the complete text of this article, see Notes for Jack Dyer

1931 News article Jack Dyer1931Tucson Citizen December 12, 1931 YOU SHOULD KNOW Jack E. Dyer Because he has been the police chief of Tucson for seven years, spends much time in studying his work and apparently has accomplished that nearly impossible feat of pleasing all of the people all of the time (Law breakers excepted). He was born in Colorado, came here on a visit 14 years ago, and immediately telegraphed his wife to hurry along because he had found their future home. He started as a patrolman and worked his way to the top in four years. He is what is known as a modern police official, has no use for third degree methods, is a member of the International Police Chiefs and Sheriffs association, and his reputation for "putting the finger" on a man has spread by grapevine among undesirables so that so-called hard persons omit Tucson from their itinerary. Local traffic problems worry him more than battling crime, yet his orders are for flashing action when crime breaks. The orders his men have received are short. They are "Go after the crooks fast" and "Tell me about it later." He spends all his spare time with his family, usually motoring in the mountains nearby.
1933 News article Jack Dyer1933Tucson Star January 19, 1933 (No title) The old time cattle horn may be installed as a traffic officers' whistle here following a gift to Chief Jack Dyer yesterday. L.J. Franklin of California dropped in on the police chief long enough to make him a present of a handsome horn, fresh from the head of a steer. The chief, who in his youth could blow a mighty blast on this implement, demonstrated that he still had all the old power. It was then that the chief, jesting, suggested its use for the traffic squad.
