More than 45 neighborhoods are participating in tonight's "Tulsa Night Out" to promote law enforcement and community partnerships and prevent crime prevention.

With nearly 50 homicides this year, the event comes at a critical time in the city and will be hosted by the Crime Prevention Network. 

The events are part of a national campaign usually celebrated on the second day of August, but Tulsa is hosting it later because it'll be cooler outside.

The campaign started in 1984 in an effort to prevent crime and enhance the relationship with emergency workers.

Tulsa Night Out will host cookouts, live entertainment and more for the whole family.

The events will be held from 6:30 to 9:30.
