In what context have you heard this? (I've never heard of a Harassment Register and can't find it on Google - but that doesn't necessarily mean there's no such thing).

No such thing. Not criminally anyway.

I was told I was being put on a Harrasment Register for ever & ever!  By policeman that came to my home late on Sunday evening, he stated I had been taking pics of someones house late at night, I told him I was at home & could prove it as we had a power cut, he was not interested, the person that phoned the police to report me is now telling friends that I am on this register. As I have never had dealings with the police I do not know if it is true or not, as this persons father is a policeman & it could quite possibly be his friends!

Hmmm - that's not something I've ever heard of.

It would also be weird for you to be put on a register without ever making it as far as the police station etc.
 

I'm struggling to see how taking pictures of someone's house on one occasion could be seen as harrassement, as well, if I'm honest.

 

I'd suggest giving the Policeman a ring to ask what he meant?

Not true. It 'may' be that there is some sort of non crime report generated and you are named on that but certainIy no register. At least not nationally.

Did you get the POs name and shoulder number? You should report this to the Chief Constable as as formal complaint.

Or you could ring and ask him prior to taking things to such lengths.

As devil said, why is everyone complaint happy, surely try to find out full facts first as it could very easily be a misunderstanding

I would suggest that you call at your local police station to find out exactly what's going on. Could it possibly be that it wasn't a police officer but someone impersonating one? Its not hard to have a realistic looking uniform to people that aren't familiar with every detail of police uniform, the only bits that are hard to fake or acquire are the functioning radio and a police car outside.

Pre-supposes that a PO will give you the full facts and not carefully edited highlights - which they tend to do when it comes to harassement issues.

Do they? How do you know this?

In fairness, "tend to" is probably a bit sweeping - replace with "sometimes do". I know this from reading POs own comments on the many threads on this forum dealing with Harassment ;-)

I also find that some people dont remember accurately what they have been told by a police officer about what has happened

I was told I was being put on a Harrasment Register for ever & ever!    


And does anyone say "for ever and ever" apart from 10 year old girls?

Yes, fair point - do you have any opinion on why that might be?

Often because they only hear what they want to hear.

I think the topic starter might have noticed if a 10 yo girl was impersonating a PO :wink:

Because people are often under a number of emotional pressures when speaking to us. Like when people go to the doctor and forget mist of what they say. And doctors all lie

My best guess would be a miscommunication and that the officer was talking about local intel systems and a local version of a PIN / Harassment warning.  They will likely keep a record of all PINs and it may be that this is what they were referring to, rather than as you have quoted it, which makes it sound like a national register such as the sex offender register.  Ignoring onthesquare's somewhat premature advice, give us  or go and get some more information - I am assuming you got some kind of paperwork with this, or signed something - what did that paperwork say?  If you have nothing, make an appointment to pop in and see the officer involved and ask them to explain very clearly what is meant, and if you are unclear still, ask them to write it in a letter or email so that you can get someone with better specific knowledge to look at you and advise completely impartially.

 

It seems as though the most likely explanation is the officer has tried to tell you a single event of harassment has been complained about, and that this information is held on local systems 'for ever and ever' and therefore if you do it again you could get into trouble, completing the full offence of harassment - however, you should clarify this, so pop in and ask.  You are entitled to have it clearly laid out so you fully understand the implications and process - indeed if it is a 'warning' in form of a PIN or similar, the police will very much want you to understand so that the problem is solved here and not repeated.
