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.
'Unsubstantiated': The CCRB has fully investigated but could not affirmatively conclude both that the conduct occurred and that it broke the rules.

Defendant officers removed a pill bottle from Plaintiff's pocket which contained the Plaintiff's lawfully prescribed daily medication. Defendant Officers ignored his explanation and the fact that he had a letter and prescriptions from his doctor in his bag that was in the vehicle proving it was lawfully prescribed.

Defendant Officers failed to secure his seat belt and drove in a manner that the Plaintiff was dangerously tossed around in the vehicle.
