LAS VEGAS, Nov. 21, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Defense Technologies International Corp. (OTCQB:DTII) (The Company), a developer of security technologies, is pleased to announce the appointment of Mark Taggatz as a member of the Advisory Team as Director of Marketing.

Mark Taggatz has an extensive sales and marketing career that covers over 29 years.

"I am pleased to join Defense Technologies International Corp. with the goal to help increase sales and shareholder value for the company.  Defense Technologies International has developed what I believe to be a superior and a healthier scanner than what is currently being used by airports around the world.

I am highly confident that The Offender Alert Passive Scan™ provides a very safe and cost effective solution that will not only help prevent terror attacks but will also help save lives," stated Taggatz.

Merrill W. Moses, the CEO of Defense Technologies International Corp. commented: “It’s terrific for our Company to expand the depth of our available life and personal experiences. Mark, I’m sure, will assist us by magnifying our approach to the markets that can truly use and who desperately need our 21st Century enhanced security products ... I’m pleased to have Mark and his expertise join us and assist us in our efforts to provide a better level of security to our Schools and for our Children. Once again, I hope all can observe our efforts to truly make a ‘difference’... and join us, all those who believe that a “Safer America” is a safer World.”

The Company’s Business:

The Offender Alert Passive Scan™
The Company’s 'Offender Alert Passive Scan™' is a “next generation” walk-through detector scanning unit. This patented and trademarked passive scanning system allows for detecting and identifying concealed threats such as guns, knives, etc. Unlike other scanners the public is more familiar with, Defense Technologies does NOT use X-rays to detect threats. Serious health concerns have been raised over the repeated exposure to X-rays from scanning machines currently in use.

  • Our scanner technology is based on the ‘Earth Magnetic Fields’, has no emission whatsoever and is therefore harmless to the subject passing through our portal, especially ideal for schools.
