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.
