    It's important to keep policies short, as users (in some jurisdictions) cannot be held if an Acceptable Usage Policy they signed is overly complex, long or legalese.
    Policies should be reviewed regularly, to include new things like smartphones and iPads and remove references to dial-up and floppy disks.

    An over-arching Acceptable Usage Policy is a good place to start,  the more generic (Do not use for illegal purposes) rather than specific (Do not use p2p filesharing programs) the better

    Make sure your policies cover every aspect of an employee (or contractor, third-party, partner) lifecycle:
    Changing role
    Changing Manager or FTEs
    Getting and returning IT and telecoms equipment
    Disciplinary process

    Make consequences clear (You may have access to internet removed or you may face a disciplinary process rather than just saying "Do not....")

    It's difficult to do, as my polices are specific for the company I work in and would have to do a lot of redacting to turn it into a template, and that's too much work for me......
    I think when I started in IT Security, I looked for templates and could find them, so wrote them myself.

    Here's something, but again it's only headlines

    Searching, I've seen a some templates you can buy, but I've no idea if they are any good
