Noun, person in authority or power such as a teacher, parent or cop. Primarily used in Ireland by kids for any person in authority, to be avoided in order to avoid being busted.

Sometimes sketchers.

No plural, always remains in the singular. Similar usage to 'The Man'(in society) always being used in the singular, even if it refers to multiple people.
We were right in the middle of the prank when John said Sketch was coming, so we just stopped and ran off.

We were smoking some hash at the back of the school when Mike yelled sketch, so we stamped out the, joint and skedadelled.

In some cases the word sketch itself is enough to tell people to stop what theyre doing and even run away if necessary.
