Sgt. Lisa Bowman with the Sacramento Sheriff's Department says their personnel don't actually work TSA checkpoints.

"We provide a service to the airport that has mainly everything to do with security and safety of the passengers and crew," she explained.

Bowman says the safety of the airport won't be affected by the cuts, which include eight deputies, two security officers, one sergeant, and one captain.

Sacramento International Airport has been dealing with a billion dollars in debt it accrued from buliding Terminal B and is working to cut it's budget by 15% by next year.
