All SOs in federal prison receive a "public safety factor" which means the lowest security level they are eligible for is low security. The bop does have a couple of "camps" that are rated as lows, but they are not easy to get into. I actually spent the majority of my 5 year prison sentence in FCI Mediums, and preferred them to either of the 2 lows I was sent to.

If the PO was assigned to "pretrial services", you are done with her unless she transfers to the post prison group. The actual PO that he is assigned definitely matters, same rules, but completely different enforcement. The PO assignment is totally up to the office supervisor, and usually changes frequently.

The trip was challenging, but what he, and you, had to endure is 100 times better than if he was forced to be transported by the US Marshals. Plus his "custody score" will be lowered (which doesn't really matter much because of the public safety factor) because he was allowed to "self surrender".

Once he becomes acclimated to prison, life should become easier for him.
