restrict Delete Issues but allow for subtask Delete in same project

I have a requirement to allow Delete Issue in a project to a specific group - BUT - allow for subtask Delete to remain unrestricted in that same project.

Can this distinction be made between the 2 types of issues?

If you have different workflows for each issue type - yes, use workflow properties

jira.permission.delete.group = somegroup

 see http://www.j-tricks.com/tutorials/permissions-based-on-workflow-status

Thanks! Works like a charm. Is there a way to make a workflow property work for the entire workflow? Or in this case will I need to add it to every Status in the workflow to remove the Delete option?

Yep, every status.
