The Oakland Crime API job has been paused indefinitely as the source of the crime data no longer works. Previously, tabular data was available as a daily updated CSV file located here. However, for the past several weeks, the link to the CSV file has timed out.

Crime data is still visible on Crimewatch's "map" but not in the form I need. Unfortunately, I don't have time to build another scrapper so, unless this is a bug that just needs to get fixed, "that's all folks".

I'll leave the page up in case it gets fixed (I sent them an email but I think I'll be an old man before it gets a response). I hope the data has been useful for you. I believe crime data should be transparent, easily searchable, and deep. I've met people that have used the crime data for some project or another, and that has made the whole tool worth it.
