In many circumstances the police can enter a home without a warrant. With so little information, I can't tell whether they needed a warrant this time.
The fact that you live outside the city probably doesn't make a difference. Police often have to go outside their own city while performing their duties. We would be a lot less safe if police couldn't do that when they need to.
You may want to call your local ACLU chapter to discuss the warrant issue. If they agree that your rights were violated, they may be willing to work with you to get some compensation and/or to change the department's procedures.
