My headcanon says Caitlyn kept her close for a bit, then assigned her a different partner and gave Vi only the appropriate jobs. Vi's look and lore suggest a certain degree of recklessness, and while this can
be beneficial in certain situations, when it comes to delicate, subtle, or undercover work I don't think Vi would do well at all. Precision is Caitlyn's gig, let Vi handle the less subtle stuff where she gets to punch as many people as possible without getting reprimanded for it.
Plus I feel that Vi should lead a story of her own. If she's attached to Caitlyn as a sidekick(they might be "partners" but Caitlyn is still the Sheriff and Vi's employer), her character loses some of its importance and I really think she could handle more than that. If she ends up with her own partner that is not Caitlyn then she would feel more like the protagonist of her own story instead of a sort of foil to Caitlyn's precision and orderly tendencies. The piont is I don't think Vi needs to be Caitlyn's partner to be important, she can still be a high-ranking officer in Caitlyn's police force and they'll still interact of course, but if we separate the two then Vi will have that much more room to be the protagonist without constantly having to compete with Caitlyn for our attention.
