Sunset Management Lake Patrol was founded by Shane Allaire in 2000 as Sunset Security Solutions. There was a clear need for professional private security to handle marina related issues.
Over the years Sunset has expanded to protect marinas and waterfront properties across 6 of Texas' largest lakes. Every client that we have picked up along the way has remained a client. As of 2020 we maintain a 100% customer retention rate since opening in 2000, which is unheard of in this industry.
Team Sunset is more than a group of employees but rather a family and a lifestyle. Each of our employees are carefully chosen to represent us in a way that mirrors our founder's original idea and philosophy. Each employee brings to the table their own unique experiences and education that set them apart from your typical guard.
Today Sunset Management Lake Patrol is a complete Investigation, Security and Consultation Firm that continues to be the leader in Marina Security!
Shane Allaire grew up in Ft. Stockton, TX and currently resides in Canyon Lake, TX full-time and El Paso, TX part-time. He worked overnight security for a marina while pursuing a criminal justice degree in the early 90's. During this time he was also volunteering for the Travis County Sheriff's Office Victim Services unit. He noticed a need for an overhaul in the security industry, specifically a specialized type of security to deal with marina related issues. He started what has evolved into Sunset Management Lake Patrol. His first customer was Lake Travis Yacht Harbor Marina where he had previously worked for 5 years. With word of mouth, support within local law enforcement and a great track record for catching thieves, he eventually spread the company to marinas across Texas. The original marina that he worked for during college remains a customer today, over a quarter century later. In addition to being a Commissioned Security Officer, Shane is also a licensed Private Investigator and Personal Protection Officer. He is a member of the Texas Association of Licensed Investigators (TALI), Marina Association of Texas (MAT), Associated Security Services and Investigators of the State of Texas (ASSIST) and the Sheriff's Association of Texas. In his down time Shane enjoys reading & boating but mostly restoring automobiles & homes with his wife and family.
