Transportation Security – Chico, CA transportation services face significant threats on a daily basis, from domestic terrorism, to assaults on passengers and operators, to property crimes. Professionally installed video surveillance systems from Crime Free Living can help transportation companies actively monitor all areas of their operations for potential threats like abandoned objects, escalating tensions between people, or suspicious activity.

Crime Free Living can install a video security system anywhere within your transportation infrastructure, including:

  • Entrances and Perimeters
  • Payment and Ticketing Stations
  • Parking Lots
  • Stations, Platforms and Terminals
  • Loading Docks
  • Cargo Staging and Storage Areas
  • Garages, Depots, and Yards
  • In Vehicles to Monitor Drivers, Passengers, and Cargo

Passenger and Operator Safety – Maintaining a secure transit environment means protecting passengers and vehicle operators from all potential threats. Video surveillance systems promote safety by acting as a deterrent to criminal behavior. They also enable your security teams to identify emerging threats, and act before they escalate to become dangerous incidents.

Protect Property – Loss of valuable assets and cargo due to theft and internal shrink is a significant problem in the transportation industry. Vehicles, passenger loading and unloading sites, and storage facilities are all susceptible to robbery and theft. Having video surveillance cameras in place can serve as a significant deterrent against these types of events.

Deter Vandalism – Vandalism can be costly to remediate, negatively impact ridership and interfere with day-to-day operations. Video surveillance systems from Crime Free Living provide a visual presence to help deter vandals, and reduce incidences of trespassing and loitering. When vandalism does occur, multi megapixel security cameras will catch the perpetrators in the act, and provide court admissible video evidence with the necessary forensic detail to identify faces. We offer vandalproof dome cameras and enclosures with IK10 impact resistance, that are capable of withstanding physical damage should criminals try to disable them.

Rapid Response – Crime Free Living provides surveillance systems that empower your transportation security teams to respond to incidents in real time. With 24/7 remote monitoring capabilities, security officials can identify risks and respond to situations immediately.

Capture Vital Evidence – Whether you need to provide evidence of a crime to law enforcement authorities or to prove a claim during litigation, you can easily search and access the video and audio data from your security system. Our central management software includes features like smart search, customizable screen views, date and time calendar search, video tagging, instant replay and more to help you access the specific footage you need, quickly.

Operational Consistency – Achieving consistency in your Chico, CA transportation business processes is key to providing on-time service, maintaining ridership, and ensuring regulatory compliance. With a professionally designed and installed security camera system, you will have the capability to monitor activity 24/7 in transit vehicles and public areas, to identify potential issues and determine the appropriate course of action to improve process and maintain consistency.

Monitor Employee Performance – Professional video security systems can also help evaluate employee performance. These systems enable transportation providers to track workers’ movements and activities, monitor productivity, and evaluate performance related to customer service. This information can help inform management’s decision making processes to optimally adjust staffing levels and workflows, and conduct performance evaluations.

Measure Advertising Effectiveness – Advertising is a key source of revenue for many Chico, CA transportation companies. Video surveillance can help to measure audience engagement with vehicle signage and display advertising. Crime Free Living provides video security cameras and recorders with video analytics, including region entrance/exit, object counting, heat mapping and more, which can help transportation providers gather data to help gauge advertising performance.

Reduce Liability – Should an incident occur that involves a passenger or operator injury, multi megapixel video surveillance footage can provide key evidence to determine exactly what happened. This can help to defend against frivolous slip and fall lawsuits and false claims in injury cases. For this reason, many insurance companies provide discounted premiums for transit organizations that have video surveillance technology in place.

Secure Data Storage – Our video security systems feature purpose built security recorders with advanced surveillance-class hard drives. Internal storage up to 192 TB enables you to store and protect months’ worth of video security data.

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."
