You can use "reporter" in the "delete issue" permission in the permission scheme.

Two points though

  • If someone can change the reporter, they can take control of the issue and delete it
  • Delete means it.  The issue is gone and you can't get it back.  Delete permission should be very limited or, in most cases, simply not granted at all.
