I would keep it simple.
If it is too technical - they may agree but really have no idea what they are reading.
Just go over basic protection, such as password, email, and web surfing. Social media policies and so on that keep everyone involved protected (depending what you are writing the policy for)
I would keep the technical side of it for the system administrators, such as firewall policies, outbound mail policies, spam filtering, antivirus policies and so on. Just make the non-technical users aware that they do have spam filtering, antivirus, etc.
Give them enough to help protect them selves, and understand that you do your part in protecting them, but don't give them too much as to confuse them.
Atleast that is my opinion.
I read a book that explained a-lot of great information about writing documentation and security policies in general, you may be interested in it. 'the practice of network and system administration.'
