Schedule A Needs Assessment

The general public depends on government agencies to provide domestic security, and to support a wide variety of societal functions. When the security of government agencies is compromised, this can have a ripple effect throughout the entire community. Crime Free Living provides comprehensive government security systems that help mitigate threats to government agencies and facilities, keep them up and running, and enabling their teams to:

Protect Against Existential Threats – Government agencies are uniquely vulnerable to escalated threats not faced in the private sector. Government facilities can be the target of terrorists, organized criminals, and random shooters, putting the lives of government officials, staff members, and the public in danger. A comprehensive security system including video surveillance, access control and 24/7 monitoring is the best defense to help protect government facilities, personnel, contractors, visitors, and the Chico, CA community at large.

Support Emergency Management – How government agencies respond to emergency situations is critical to maintaining community trust. A comprehensive security system helps to empower agency staff with accurate information so they can respond to threats immediately and appropriately. Our security infrastructure is designed to ensure that your government organization is never left vulnerable in an emergency.

Ensure Staff Safety – Government staff are particularly vulnerable to outside threats. That’s why it’s vital to ensure that your entire facility, from the perimeter to parking areas to internal offices, is protected by professionally installed video surveillance and access control systems. By providing a secure environment, staff can focus on meeting the needs of its Chico, CA constituents.

Protect Property – Many government agencies use high value technologies to protect and provide services to the public. Property loss from theft and damage can compromise these services, and can be extremely costly to taxpayers. In particular, the assets of law enforcement and the military must be safeguarded, due to the risk to public safety if these assets are misappropriated. Our government security systems are designed to deter criminals and reduce the risk of theft and burglary, and keep a watchful eye on critical inventory.

Deter Vandalism – Vandalism, from graffiti to property destruction, is difficult to remediate and costly for taxpayers. Our multi megapixel video security camera technology helps to identify and catch vandals in the act. Our video security cameras feature housings that are IK10 impact resistant, to withstand physical damage should a perpetrator attempt to disable them.

Manage Visitors – Maintaining a secure environment is critical at government facilities, military bases, and historical sites. With a professionally installed access control system from Crime Free Living, you can ensure that no one has access to your facility beyond their authorization.

Improve Operational Consistency – Systems and protocol are the backbone of government agency operations. From compliance to administrative functions, staffing and recruitment, facility management, sourcing equipment and supplies, process management is critical to successful outcomes. Video security technology enables you to monitor the processes and workflow of your agency, to ensure that personnel are performing at their peak, and to identify areas for improvement.

Crime Free Living employs the latest technology and tools to create customized, flexible, and fully-integrated security systems for governmental agencies.

What Our Customers Say

"I had the Alibi system installed several years ago. It has functioned flawlessly. The image quality is exellent both night and day and in all weather conditions. I particularly like the replay (which can be set at various speeds) and zoom functions of the system. Tech support from Crimefreeliving has been excellent. I have received quick responses to questions, and timely home visits — as when I changed IP carriers and my Alibi system needed to be reset. I have recommended Crimefreeliving to several friends."


"As a small business owner here in Chico we definitely saw the need for video surveillance. After expressing our needs and concerns Tim did an excellent job getting us set up with the set up with the appropriate equipment. He really took the time to address our concerns in a very friendly, professional and knowledgeable manner. I highly recommend Tim for all of your business and residential video surveillance needs."

Ron H., Owner/Auto Doctor

"I have to say I love having my security cameras at my home. Tim Truby did a wonderful job of installing the five cameras. He is very neat and cleaned everything up after the installation. He explained to me how to operate the monitor, my phone and IPad. However, I have had to call Tim because I'm not tech savvy and forget what he has told me. He usually just helps me over the phone and then all is well. I'm 80 years old and enjoy the comfort of knowing I have these security cameras."


"Tim Truby designed and installed a 32 camera system for us here at the Butte County Mosquito and Vector Control District. We had received several other quotes from security system vendors, but Tim’s quote was the least expensive. Tim also installed the system quickly and has always been available when we needed him. We are very happy with our security camera system and we can highly recommend Tim Truby for all of your surveillance system needs."

D. Weseman, Butte County Mosquito and Vector Control District

Crime Free Living updated our old video system with a new 16 Channel HD Alibi Video Security System. The old system had been added onto by different installers which resulted in a cabling mess. There were cables that worked and cables that went nowhere. It was a mess. Tim sorted it all out and installed cameras that are very clear. He also installed a monitor for our cashiers to watch hidden areas, a monitor to watch the entry door, and a monitor that allows employees to watch the outside parking and gas pump area. All work was done on time and very professional! Will always recommend Tim and Crime Free Living.

S. AM PM Chico Arco Station

"I had Tim install an Alibi Video Security System at my residence and a couple business locations. The remote view option is invaluable to absentee owners or anyone who travels a lot. The clarity and quality of the cameras have allowed for viewing employee theft. The evidence provided from the HD video cameras was fantastic! Tim was professional and provided extra value from his law enforcement background."

J. Folsom Arco Station

"Tim, I want to thank you again for doing such a fantastic job on installing a wireless IP security camera system at our dream home. The extra time that you took to hide wires, and install a clean, professional system is much appreciated. I still can’t believe the clarity, quality, and ease of use of this new system. I wished that I would have met you before our original inferior system was installed by another company. Now, whether I am at home, or monitoring the system from around the world, I know that my home and family are safe and sound."

John M.

"In April of 2017, my husband and I made a phone call to Crime Free Living that turned out to be a smart and wise decision. Amazingly, in just a few hours, Tim installed four Dome Security Cameras, weatherproof enclosures, and hooked up into our home a 23" Full HD Widescreen Security Monitor. Even more than his professional expertise was the time spent with us in making sure that this system was working correctly and properly installed on our phones so that anywhere in our travels we can monitor our new home in Magalia."

Tieka and Don S.

"I have been using Crime Free Living for the last couple years ar work and at home and I really recommend this product. Tim is a very good service provider. If he can't figure it out, he's got good tech support with the system that he offers."

Gary D.

"I have known Tim for over 10 years. To date, Time with Crime Free Living has installed two separate surveillance systems for my company. With each system, Tim has listened to my needs and custom dsigned surveillance systems for my specific needs and within my budget. The equipment used is always state of the art, the workmanship is top notch, and Tim is the example of trustworthy. I would recommend him for any job."
