Hopefully your area is included in the Police Ping database and you can set up custom notifications to alert you if and when a warrant is issued for your arrest.
If the charge is very minor or traffic related, the police may just need to get a court date set up and your signature.
Also unfortuantly many times the police will lie and tell you this is nothing serious and try to arrange a meeting when they fully intend to arrest you.
Police may also just show up at your house if they have the address.
If you suspect you have a warrant, you already know what the general nature of the charge would be. Even if Police Ping monitors the area in question, it's still recommended you bookmark the main city/county website or data feed and check it constantly over the next few days. Most smaller counties would get things done quickly while some major and even not so big cities can take months to summons a criminal warrant against you.
If a warrant is issued for your arrest, it's important stay calm and carefully plan your next move to ensure the best possible outcome.
Your best option is always to turn yourself vs getting caught, and when you go, go stright to the jail, bypass the police department and go only after getting your affairs in order and arranging bail and/or attorney.
Most lawyers will give you a free initial consultation. Keep in mind this is also a sales pitch so be prepared. You can also gain lots of advice of the local legal system and what you can expect so listen carefully.
If you are approached by police or detectives, be polite but firm and refuse to answer any questions without your lawyer present.
This may sound easy but when you're put in that position between jail and freedom, you're wanting to do or say anything to get out, don't talk!
