    Answered . Depending on why you want it, and what form is has to be in, you can also purchase a subscription to an online service that runs background checks in order to get a copy of your criminal record. If you need an certified copy from the Department of Public Safety, you are right to be concerned that you will be arrested if you identify yourself to a law enforcement agent for that purpose. In Montgomery County, where I practice, many bail bondsmen will be happy to "check the system" for open warrants, and so will many criminal defense attorneys.
