Conclusion Meanings:

'Exonerated': Also referred to as 'Within NYPD Guidelines' - the alleged conduct occurred but did not violate the NYPD's own rules, which often give officers significant discretion.
'Unsubstantiated': CCRB has fully investigated but could not affirmatively conclude both that the conduct occurred and that it broke the rules.
