'Exonerated': or 'Within NYPD Guidelines' - 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.
'Unsubstantiated': or 'Unable to Determine' - CCRB has fully investigated but could not affirmatively conclude both that the conduct occurred and that it broke the rules.

Second Amended Complaint
Plaintiff and their friends were holding a celebration at the community garden.

Although nothing illegal was found as a result of the police officers' unlawful search, the police officers nevertheless arrested Plaintiffs, took them to the 46th Precinct, unlawfully searched some of them, and falsely charged them with Disorderly Conduct. Charges were eventually dismissed.
