Default Need Advice trouble in barracks

My son is in a unit for maximum security, though his charges are drug related. There are some really rough guys in there and they are doing some bad things in the barracks. My son's life would be in danger for sharing the information. There is an active black market. There are drugs, even drugs with needle usage. There are several cell phones in there. Involvement in any of these means more prison time. He has only been there a few days and hopes to make class I and go to work release as soon as he can.

What is the best action to take that would get the quickest results to get him transferred to a minimum to medium security unit, or at least one where it's not worse in prison than it would be on the streets in downtown Chicago? His defense attorney? prosecuting attorney? attorney general? It has to be someone trustworthy who can get him moved safely.

I really hate to be the one to break it to you but there are hard drugs and killers on every prison yard, minimum to maximum in the country. There's a black market for it everywhere, COs get paid many times the street value to bring it in. Every state has a rating system for how they place inmates, the only way for him to get moved is to stay out of trouble and do as many classes and programs as he can to get his points dropped. But be prepared, even on low yards there's violence and drugs.

Or....He could go into protective custody if he was personally in danger doesn't sound like it) and didn't mind serving the rest of his sentence on a PC yard, but that is rarely the best option.

The best action and safest is for him is to see nothing and mind his own business until he can get transferred.

In Arkansas K2 is rampant throughout the prison system, including work release and lower custody units. Prisoners die from overdoses every month. The advice that he should stay to himself and not get involved is the best advice you'll get. One thing that concerns me is that he is in maximum custody and has a drug conviction. Be supportive and remind him that any involvement in those activities have the possibility of loss of good time, parole deferral and potential for new charges.
