Comments

The crime data is fairly large, so LAPD started a new dataset in 2016 so that it loads faster.

2012 - 2015: https://data.lacity.org/A-Safe-City/Crimes-2012-2015/s9rj-h3s6

2016 to present: https://data.lacity.org/A-Safe-City/LAPD-Crime-and-Collision-Raw-Data-for-2016/ftdn-8ftx

Updates weekly -- unsure what the appropriate update frequency is for crime data. Marked as Yes for timely basis.
