My husband has an active warrant. How do we find out what it's for?

My husband just got a permit denied for the reason that there was an active warrant against him. We have no idea what it can possibly be for and need to find out ASAP, as he's going up for a job that will be doing a background check. How can we best do this as fast as possible?

This is in Washington State. I tried calling the police department, but they said for warrants they would not be able to give any information over the phone and suggested him coming in with his ID - which I don't want him to do if we don't know what it's for. Is there any other way we can find this information out? Would an online background check pull it?
Please help, we are both freaking out pretty desperately.
