Police wearing battle fatigues have been seen carrying paintbrushes around Kingston's notorious slums in an effort to cover up images that may be glorifying "leaders of Jamaica's violent underworld".
- The first, depicts community heroes such as successful reggae artistes, businessmen and sports people.
- Second set depicts political figures. These tend to be local activists who have championed the community or international black anti-colonial, political heroes such Marcus Garvey, Leonard Howell, Haile Selassie, and others.
- The third group consists of religious images often with Rastafari themes like the Apocalypse, the Last Supper, and the Black Madonna and child.
- The fourth group is made up of commemorative murals (aka sunrise and sunset murals). These portray community members who have died - sometimes but not always - violently. There are memorial murals for police who come from the neighbourhoods and who have fallen in the line of duty.
