I believe the distinction relates to whether they work in the private or public sector not whether they work for an organization or are independent. Thus a P.I. is anyone who doesn't work for the government and is a professional investigator. The Continental Op for example is a company man and a P.I.

Well, he was an investigator, fulfilling the I, but technically, he wasn't private, so no P. He was a company man, on the staff of the insurance company, unlike Joseph Hansen's Daid Brandstetter, say, who did most of his insurance work on a freelance basis.
