You will be met with much resistance to your new name in your encounters with the police. If the police stop you and cannot find your name listed in their computers, they might assume you are lying. They may charge you with the crime of "giving false name to a police officer" if they think you are someone else.
If they take you to jail, they will undoubtedly call you by your state name or even "John Doe." They will refuse to believe that you are a new creature. They may even refuse to acknowledge that you are in their jail. When I was in jail, my wife called the Clackamas County jail inquiring about Paul Revere. They denied that I was even in their jail. When mail was sent to Paul Revere, they would mark it, "Not Here, Return to Sender."
We knew they were just playing games to test our convictions. My wife decided to write the following letter to the desk clerks exposing what they were doing. When the jail commander saw the letter, he visited me in my cell and said, "I received a letter from your wife declaring that your true name is Paul Revere and that you are having difficulty receiving your mail. I cannot speak for the courts, but as for this jail, you will be recognized as Paul Revere." The letter worked - I received no more persecution about my name from that jail.

Re: Paul Revere, Ambassador of Jesus Christ
Grace and Peace to all who love the truth. Apparently your supervisors have told you not to admit that your jail has imprisoned Christ's servant, Paul Revere. Perhaps your supervisors want to hide the fact that they are inflicting suffering upon a man for his allegiance to Jesus Christ. Yet deceiving people about the true whereabouts of Paul Revere only adds to the evil being done.
Paul Revere has used no other name for several years. Do you not want others to call you by your name? If you are a woman and get married, do you not want others to call you by your new married name? Paul Revere was given a new name when he "married" Jesus Christ and it is his true and only name.
Leading people to believe something that is not true is a form of lying. The essence of lying is in deception, not in words. A lie may be told by silence, by equivocation, by the accent on a syllable, by a glance of the eyes, or by attaching a peculiar significance to a sentence; and all these kinds of lies are worse and baser by many degrees than a lie plainly worded.
Do you know that Satan is the father of lies? (John 8:44) Sometimes it is necessary to obey God rather than men by refusing to participate in a deception. You may not win the praise of men, but you will be serving God rather than His enemies.
May the Almighty God give you the courage to perform your duties without compromising the Truth.
