It is lawful for a police officer or correctional officer to put on a person arrested, whether with or without a warrant, physical restraints, whether by hand cuffs, leg-restraints or other means—

(a) whenever such person is being moved from a place of confinement to Court or from Court to a place of confinement;

(b) whenever such person is being moved from one place of confinement to another, if there exists a reasonable apprehension of violence or of attempts to escape or by order of the Court.
