Conclusion Meanings:

'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.

Rogers, Shaheim, et al. vs City of New York, et al.
Case # 19CV03360, U.S. District Court - Eastern District NY, June 11, 2019, ended January 10, 2020
$12,500 Settlement
Complaint
Description: On October 25, 2017, Shaheim Rogers, Bevon Benn, and Sianna Stewart were waiting for a friend inside a rental Zipcar outside of an apartment building. Officers Fagan, Patel, Khitab, and Does approached the car, ordered everyone outside, tightly handcuffed them, searched them, searched the Zipcar, and searched Sianna's wallet. The officers found no contraband. The officers asked who the owner of the car was, and the group responded that it was Dayvoun Joyner, their friend. The officers refused to let Sianna call Dayvoun, and brought them to the precinct for processing, where they again searched the group. Dayvoun came to the precinct and told officers that the group was authorized to drive the car, but they rema...

Case # 512581/2018, Supreme Court - Kings, June 26, 2018, ended August 31, 2018
Zero Disposition
Complaint
Description: On December 31, 2015, plaintiff was arrested by defendant P.O.s McCarthy and Rolffot. The P.O.s had stopped plaintiff as he was walking down the street, and thereafter conducted a search of plaintiff. Approximately 2 hours prior to plaintiff's arrest, a complainant had reported a burglary incident. Surveillance footage reviewed by defendant Sgt. Henderson and Detective Defranco prior to their arrival at the scene of plaintiff's arrest clearly depicted the perpetrator of the burglary; the perpetrator was obviously not plaintiff. Henderson was nonetheless designated the arresting officer. Non-party Detective Lopez further alleged that he recovered a pipe with crack cocaine residue from plaintiff's shoe. Plaintif...
