I have a crime (point) data on a map which is animated via time slider using a 1-week-period.

I see all the points I added without a problem, I also added a dynamic text indicating the time period on each frame video shows.

I just would like to add in a text (I guess this should also be dynamic) the count of crimes (points) on each time period (week).

Run the Frequency tool to calculate frequency stat against each time period. Then join each period table to the crime layer by the crime type, then link by dynamic text.
