You have been named chair of the Board of Visitors of the Tinytown Juvenile Detention Center. The board is a largely-advisory/honorary body of local citizens with no charter and is designed to foster communication and goodwill between the institution and the small, rural community where it is located and from which most of its personnel is drawn. The center director asked you to serve on the board; you suspect the offer was made because your brother-in-law is the town’s mayor.
A member of your church who is in charge of maintenance at the detention center comes to you one day and tells you that it is well known in the institution that several counselors are supplying illegal narcotics to certain detainees in exchange for peace and security. Your “whistle-blower” tells you that he believes that the center director is aware of this but “looks the other way.”
The institution is important to the lifeblood and economy of the community. There is a union and civil-service requirements for employment, but most of the employees are hired through political connections nonetheless.
In a paper of approximately 1,600 words, analyze the power relationships at play in this scenario.
