Restricting Offline Editing Capabilities - Update Attributes Only

I want to give a field crew an offline wifi only tablet to populate attribute data of existing point features in the field with the Collector app.  I don't want them to be able to delete the points, just update attributes, and attach photos.  Online this is no problem, but in order to go offline it is my understanding that all layers in the map must have full editing control.  This opens up the ability for someone to accidentally delete or add points. 

Does anyone have any suggestions or workarounds here?  Everything is hosted in AGOL.
