Powershell - Add a printer to "Deployed Printers" in a GPO

We are deploying GPO's to apply printers to specific computers in specific OUs, we are accomplishing this by having an AD Group in the Security Filtering section of the Scope which lists the PCs that are authorized to have the printer.  The printers are listed in Computer Configuration\Policies\Windows Settings\Deployed Printers.

Right now we have a powershell script that is passed a set of parameters to create the necessary AD Groups, the GPO's, sets the security scope and will link it to the appropriate OU.

My problem is that I have admins who are forgetting to put in the deployed printer.

Is there a way - using powershell - to add the printer to the deployed printers section of the GPO

I expect that is you used GPO preferences instead of Deployed Printers you could edit it with PowerShell by manipulating the XML
