Some of Constable Ruble’s noteworthy service is that he responded to the scene of the Jarrell tornado incident May 27, 1997, assisting with rescue and recovery efforts.

Constable Ruble was the first Constable in Williamson County to start an evening shift dedicated primarily for the delivery of process to persons who work during the daytime. As the deputies are allowed, they work warrants on the new evening shift as well. This has resulted in a 24-hour turn around on 90% of process received by his office.
