Over the past 10 days, tributes have poured in for Det. Terry, honoring him and the work he did on the front lines as a Metro officer for more than two decades.
Most recently, Terry was assigned to the department's sex crimes bureau. His obituary said he was widely regarded as an expert in his field.
He was also a leader in the Cops on Top memorial annual hike in which officers, family and friends climb to the peaks of the tallest mountains in Nevada in memory of fallen police officers.
Metro officials said Terry also started a program at the Southeast Area Command to help reach the homeless population in remote areas.
He was 45 years old at the time of his death, and is survived by his wife and two sons.
In addition to the scheduled memorial services on Monday, Gov. Steve Sisolak ordered that flags be flown at half-staff in Terry's memory.
