Creating Python Script for Crime Data

I am attempting to create a python script that will accomplish a number of objectives.
1: I need it to select crimes based off of temporal attributes (time and date of crime, perhaps the most common ones) and the type of offenses
2: I need it to output the data in choropleth fashion based off of census blocks
This is for Old Dominion University in Norfolk, Va with approx. a 5 mile radius around it.

This either needs to become a new shapefile or a new column in the census blocks layer.
