Employ These Strategies At Your Venue To Keep Attendees Safe

October 7th, 2020

Some host concerts by musicians or bands. Others are excellent for holding political rallies and events. The places are also good for live comedy and art shows. Regardless of what is happening at the venues, owners of the establishments must take certain precautions to ensure that attendees, performers, and workers remain safe while on the premises.

For one, if they fail to do so, personal injury lawsuits could come to fruition. Should the venue owner lose the case, they will have to pay compensation to the victims. The economy is in a tough spot these days, and the losses could even lead to the business owners having to file for bankruptcy. Additionally, if people get hurt at a place, they are likely not to return. They will also tell anyone and everyone about their experience, making them not attend performances anymore.

 Venues often rely on repeat business, and if people aren't coming to shows, that can hit them where it hurts, their pocketbooks. Aside from the money aspect, proprietors should keep everybody safe, if for nothing else, because it is the right thing to do. The following sections will cover some security options that could set your venue apart from the rest. Hence, curious individuals should stick around and read on to learn more.

Install High-Quality Indoor And Outdoor Lights

When hallways, stairwells, or rooms are dimly lit, shadows can form, giving criminals places to hide and lie in wait for victims. The same can be said for outdoor paths, parking lots, and alleyways. Rapes, assaults, and murders could occur under the cover of darkness. Combat these issues by installing high-quality lighting on the inside and outside of your venue.

The bright beams will ensure that party-goers, workers, or whoever can see threats, if there are any, before walking right up to them. They will have the chance to scream or call for help. With any luck, the culprit will get scared off, and the person won't get attacked. That will largely be because of the lights you installed.


Invest In A Top-Notch Surveillance System

Surveillance cameras allow security teams to see what is happening in and around the venue. The technology helps them spot thieves, kidnappers, and weapons. Then, the guards are able to spring into action to fix the situations, or they can contact the police to get them on-site quickly. If a criminal happens to get away, detectives can review the surveillance system's footage to acquire leads. Perhaps the video shows the perpetrator's face, or maybe it reveals their license plate number. Make your venue a little safer for everyone to enjoy with security cameras.


Consider Access Control For Office Doors And Other Out-Of-Bounds Entrances

Access control comes in different shapes and sizes. However, for these purposes, we will be referring to key cards and card readers. These devices only allow those with the proper credentials to enter rooms and use resources. In other words, access control keeps people out of places they don't belong. This option ensures that valuables, products, data, and more are off-limits to visitors and criminals.

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."
