Courts mention (through their websites) the process in which to remove/expunge criminal records. Depending on the county or court venue, it is generally a petition or lawsuit to the court. Misdemeanors are often treated differently from felony convictions. There aren't any guarantees that the petition will be granted, at the least not by the courts. You will usually need legal representation, however, there doesn't seem to be any restrictions against self representation. There are advocate groups or legal services such as the Council on Crime and Justice which will be very helpful, even by simply reading their content they put out for the public. This group has seminars to help people looking to correct or erase past criminal information. The New Jersey courts have this on pdf "How to Expunge Your Criminal and/or Juvenile Record", it's a good place to start to familiarize yourself with the process.

Arrest reports, arrest records, criminal background checks are not necessarily the same. An arrest report will generally contain more details than a record of arrest. Background checks in most instances will not have arrest history as they tend to only show convictions. Arrests do not always result in convictions and therefore are not considered the same as criminal records. To find arrest reports you will generally need to contact the law enforcement agency which made the arrest. For help with locating the individual police or sheriffs department, crime mapping is a free source which can be used if you know the location. Online news outlets publish arrestees and some facts about the incident. If the individual was charged and went to court, you can see case details as they tend to be considered public information. There are conditions and policies attached to releasing arrest reports to individuals. The policies can affect when and who is eligible to receive the arrest report. The policies can be viewed on the individual law enforcement department's website, many with separate webpages for their records divisions.
You can use a crime mapping sites if you know what the arrest was for, to narrow possible departments which may have the information. The closer you get to the source, the better the info, papers may not have all the information that is put up by the arresting agency in their inmate rosters (original sources).
There have been cases where the private entity was acting on the behalf or instead of a public agency. There was a case involving a large phone company performing contract work for a government agency. I believe these instances can blur the line between public entity and private companies and their public record obligation.
Warrants are generally issued by the court/judge but can be viewed on few law enforcement agency sites openly. This is a concern of an individual checking of their own status but do not want to contact the police. Using Bergen county sheriffs as an example, has a webpage showing their most wanted and a warrants page with mug-shots and offender posters. It is important to mention the area, city or county of your search.
