No more CBPOs doing administrative jobs

Why spend the money to send Customs & Border Protection Officers to FLETC to train as officers and spend years doing in-port training only to have them eventually work an administrative job? At both ports I have worked at we have multiple CBPOs who do nothing but the port's scheduling and other administrative jobs. I think it would be more cost-effective to hire civilians to do these jobs (and have them at a lower grade).
