Swamp Meadow Covered Bridge Patch:
The Foster, Rhode Island police patch shown above is a seven-color shoulder patch depicting Foster's Swamp Meadow Covered Bridge.
The Swamp Meadow Covered Bridge is Rhode Island's only covered bridge on a public road.
This forty foot long replica of an authentic nineteenth-century wooden covered bridge was completed in 1994 by an all volunteer crew and built with donated lumber cut from local forests.
