Modern P.I. Licenses

Setting: a fictional town in Maine.  Present day.
Searched: permutations of "private investigator," "license," "revoked," and "Maine."

My protagonist was a licensed private investigator until 2006, when she went temporarily insane and was implicated in some rather gruesome murders.  She was never convicted, but she spent two and a half years in a catatonic state in a mental institution.  My questions:

1. Am I right in thinking that she would no longer have her P.I. license, after such a course of events?
2. What exactly IS a P.I. license?  Is it the sort of thing one carries in one's wallet, or would it be kept in one's office?
3. How would someone verify that a person was actually a licensed P.I.?
