Blackmoor Prison was another prison often mentioned in the show, and even seen when Rita Connors was transferred there in Episode 665. Blackmoor was sometimes referred to as "The Black Hole".
Blackmoor was governed by Ernest Craven, who would regularly set up opportunities for prisoners to fight, and for officers to lay bets on the results. The top dogs at Blackmoor are Roo Morgan and Rita Connors.
