Once the final disposition has been determined, the Civilian Review Commission will advise the complainant of the case disposition in a letter. The possible dispositions are:
- Unfounded - Allegation is false or not factual
- Not Sustained - Insufficient evidence to prove or disprove the incident
- Exonerated - Incident occurred but it was lawful and proper
- Sustained - Allegation is supported by sufficient evidence to justify reasonable conclusion of guilt
Although a complainant will be informed of the disposition of their complaint and any actions taken against the officer, statements, witness statements, police officer statements and other evidence obtained by Internal Affairs investigators will be classified as Public, Private or Confidential data in accordance to Minnesota Data Privacy Act (Chapter 13) and other State and Federal Laws.
