You probably need the '-K' option. From the README:
Quote:
'-K': Allow users to resume and upload files, but *NOT* to delete or rename
them. Directories can be removed, but only if they are empty. However,
overwriting existing files is still allowed (to support upload resume) . If
you want to disable this too, add -r (--autorename) .

I know you can make it so users can only delete files they own by adding the sticky permission to them or the folder I use that on my file server at work

It's a runtime option (parameter passed to pureftpd when you start it). Add it to the script you use to start PureFTP.
