Conclusion Meanings:

'Exonerated': The alleged conduct occurred but did not violate the NYPD’s own rules, which often give officers significant discretion.
'Substantiated': The alleged conduct occurred and it violated the rules. The NYPD has discretion over what, if any, discipline is imposed.
'Unfounded': Evidence suggests that the event or alleged conduct did not occur.
