How to read the data

Anyone have any tips on how to retrieve this data? I'm gone to CKANs site and they provide some code for python but the code imports modules from Python 2 and get errors with Python 3. Thanks,

Network error every other day in the morning

Whether using the API, or the QLD Crime Map, I get a network error, details stating "Internal server error" a little too often to make the api reliable for potential wide scale everyday, every minute use.
Maybe the database would be undergoing upgrades/updates. Could that please be resolved to allow virtually 100% uptime. Or at least have the server return a meaningful message like "Under maintenance" so we can display that to users.
Thank you

Past week and Yesterday Date ranges returning empty

Retrieving Crimes for past week and yesterday has been working for large suburbs like Brisbane. Out of nowhere this is not working, as of date and time of this post. This is both through the API and through online QLD Crime Map.
Reliability is a bit of an issue here :(

Android App Now Available !

Within just a month of the iOS app release, I've coded up the Android counterpart and I am proud to announce its release today.
Once again, I hope it helps people out there with deciding a secure residence.

Get Boundary Geographies is broken now?

This endpoint as defined in the API, is not working anymore: what happened?

It has started failing for unknown reasons.
