The bop does have "target" populations of SOs in different prisons. Any SO Management Program prison does have a high rate of SOs. Some other non-somp prisons do too, but other PTO members who have personal experiences will have to tell you where.

He can request a transfer to a SOMP prison at any time, and can request a voluntary transfer to any other prison after 18 months of clear conduct where he is now.

Here is a link to the SOMP policy statement. It does not show which prisons currently have the program, but by checking the A&O handbook for each prison you are researching, you should be able to find out. Petersburg VA Medium is one that does.
