The easiest way to find out if you have a warrant for arrest is to ask a police officer. They will access their databases and will be able to tell you quickly and at no cost to you. No cost that is unless you do have a warrant against you and they decide to arrest you on the spot. If you don't like the idea of possibly being arrested then don't ask a police officer.

If you suspect that you have a warrant for arrest and you know which area it would have been issued in then go and ask at the relevant courthouse. They will be able to tell you if you've been issued with any and you probably won't get arrested unless the crime is serious. This approach is less effective if the warrant was issued elsewhere.

You can now find out if you have warrants for arrest anywhere in the US by using an online website. All the public databases you need are now available to you in an easy to access and affordable way. In addition, they are completely confidential so there is no possibility of you getting arrested by using them.  Find out about warrants for arrest and a multitude of other public information about yourself.
