For harrasment does someone get a warning first or no warning

Just wondering

If someone is harassing me, would they get a warning first or can it be an arrest?

A police officer said they'd go to their house and give a warning first.

But for an arrest I heard it has to be deep, such as a threat, racial, discrimination, abusing.

Talking and mocking someone isn't going to me feel enough, even calling someone a prat isn't offensive enough an officer said
you want someone to be arrested for calling you a prat?!

I think you're talking about being charged with a crime rather than arrested.

But no, mocking someone and calling them a prat isn't a crime. Not a police mater really unless there's more to it.

In general, if someone is harassing someone in general, is the first thing that could happen is the police giving them a warning?

Also lying about status on social media isn't a police matter, not a crime.

You've answered your own question; the police said it's a warning first.

Why do you think you'll get a different answer on here?

Oh, this again - wasting police time is a crime, mocking you and calling you a prat for lying online about your CV probably isn't, the police would possibly decide you were causing your own problems here by publishing lies.

So they can take it to the police to hopefully try to change their mind.
I do enjoy the periodic threads about this, each giving no more info than the last.
