N.J. Admin. Code § 10:44D-3.2 - Investigation findings

(a) The investigating unit shall evaluate the available information and, for each allegation, determine whether abuse, neglect or exploitation has occurred, attempt to identify the perpetrator or perpetrators thereof and then make a finding either substantiating or not substantiating each allegation.
(b) The findings of substantiation shall be based upon the preponderance of the evidence found during the investigation. The preponderance of the evidence standard is the superior evidentiary weight that, though not sufficient to free the mind wholly from all reasonable doubt, is still sufficient to incline a reasonable person to conclude that an allegation is more likely true than not.
