LOWELL – A Lake County Sheriff’s Officer has been charged with stalking an ex-partner, and allegedly using police resources to do so.

According to Indiana State Police, the Criminal Investigations Division at the Lowell Post began an investigation this July centered around allegations an Officer had used police resources to stalk and harass his ex-domestic partner.

“During the investigation, it was learned that Patrol Officer Nicholas Katalinic had made false statements to the Lake County 911 Center in order to determine the whereabouts of an ex-domestic partner.  Katalinic had also used the “Spillman” program to determine the location of that same individual. The “Spillman” program is a program used by the Lake County Sheriff’s Department for specific law enforcement purposes.” Indiana State Police said Tuesday.

Katalinic allegedly used the system to make unwanted phone calls to the victim, referencing their whereabouts and the well being of their shared child.

Katalinic was charged with stalking, a level 6 Felony, and Harassment by Means of a Telephone, a Class B Misdemeanor.
