Hi Craig,
You should find the “Remove Logoff on the Start Menu” under User Configuration 
> Administrative Templates > Start Menu and Taskbar
This is from the PolicySettings spreadsheet which you can download from 
“Removes the Log Off <username> item from the Start menu and prevents users 
from restoring it.  If you enable this setting, the Log Off <username> item 
does not appear in the Start menu. This setting also removes the Display Logoff 
item from Start Menu Options. As a result, users cannot restore the Log Off 
<username> item to the Start Menu.  If you disable this setting or do not 
configure it, users can use the Display Logoff item to add and remove the Log 
Off item.  This setting affects the Start menu only. It does not affect the Log 
Off item on the Windows Security dialog box that appears when you press 
Ctrl+Alt+Del, and it does not prevent users from using other methods to log 
off.  Tip: To add or remove the Log Off item on a computer, click Start, click 
Settings, click Taskbar and Start Menu, click the Start Menu Options tab and, 
in the Start Menu Settings box, click Display Logoff.  See also: Remove Logoff 
in User Configuration\Administrative Templates\System\Logon/Logoff.”
Hope this helps.
