Block local admins from installing printers

I have a number of users laptops that are Intune enrolled and Azure Hybrid joined. The users are local admins on their windows 10 laptops and I am trying to restrict the users from being able to install printers on their laptops for data security. I have been able to prevent the users from being able to install printers via devices and printers using a policy as well as blocking USB printer driver installation by defining an Intune policy to block USB Printers GUID.
The question I have is, is there a way that I can prevent these users from installing network/shared printers and likewise Wireless printers? basically if the user manages to get hold of the Printers software package/driver deployment package from the printer manufacturer they are able to use that to install the Wireless/network printers.

I need the users to be local admins but I also need to be able to prevent them from being able to install printers.
